Denver
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.
Let the collections at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art and Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum capture your imagination. Get some historical perspective at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Byers-Evans House. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Emerald Lake Trail (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Estes Park Visitor Center (in Estes Park) and Roxborough State Park (in Littleton). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, admire the masterpieces at Clyfford Still Museum, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, and explore the galleries of Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver trip itinerary planning website .

In September, daytime highs in Denver are 79°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
