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.
You'll explore and learn at Argo Mill and Tunnel and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Escape the urban bustle at Alluvial Fan and Sprague Lake. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & St Mary's Glacier), Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Cub Lake Trail, Emerald Lake Trail, & more). The adventure continues: glide through natural beauty at Cherry Creek State Park, stroll through Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, and engage your brain at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.

In June, daytime highs in Denver are 83°F, while nighttime lows are 55°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
