Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Visit Dinosaur Ridge and Mother Cabrini Shrine for their historical value. Get a sense of the local culture at Benson Park Sculpture Garden and Mountain Blown Glass. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Chapel on the Rock (in Allenspark), Odell Brewing Company (in Fort Collins) and Estes Park (Kirks Flyshop & Mountain Adventures, Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, & more). Next up on the itinerary: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, take a stroll through Historic Olde Town Arvada, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Holy Ghost Catholic Church, and trek along Emerald Lake Trail.

For more things to do, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, read Denver travel route planner.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
