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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Adams Falls Trail and St Mary's Glacier. Take a break from the city and head to Alluvial Fan and Sprague Lake. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Horsetooth Mountain Open Space (in Fort Collins), Pearl Street Mall (in Boulder) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Cub Lake Trail, Emerald Lake Trail, & more). Next up on the itinerary: get interesting insight from Tours, get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Wild Animal Sanctuary, and admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.

In July, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
