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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Center for Colorado Women's History at the Byers-Evans House. Take a break from the city and head to Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Climbing Tours. 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). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, admire the masterpieces at Swetsville Zoo, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, and look for all kinds of wild species at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.

To see maps, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver itinerary planner.

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.
