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.
Bring the kids along to Dinosaur Ridge and Estes Park Ride-A-Kart & Cascade Creek Mini-Golf. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dillon Reservoir and Sprague Lake. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Idaho Springs (St Mary's Glacier, Argo Gold Mill and Tunnel, & more), Horsetooth Mountain Open Space (in Fort Collins) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Alberta Falls, Cub Lake Trail, & more). Next up on the itinerary: explore the landscape on two wheels at Boulder Creek Path, get answers to all your questions at Estes Park Visitor Center, have some family-friendly fun at Tiny Town Miniature Golf, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

For where to stay, photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Denver road trip planner .

July in Denver sees daily highs of 87°F and lows of 60°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
