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 Union Station and Molly Brown House Museum for their historical value. Head to 16th Street Mall and Pearl Street Mallfor plenty of shopping. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Summit Lake Park), Mother Cabrini Shrine (in Golden) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Sheep Lakes, Many Parks Curve Overlook, & more). On the 30th (Mon), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Winter Park Resort. Spend the 2nd (Wed) on the water with a fishing tour. There's still lots to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airport is Denver International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in September, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
