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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Denver Museum of Nature & Science and 16th Street Mall. Head to Pearl Street Mall and Colorado Cherry Companyfor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Summit Lake Park), Estes Park (Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, Photography Tours, & more) and Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park). Spend the 24th (Wed) on the water with a fishing tour. And it doesn't end there: explore the galleries of Denver Botanic Gardens, pause for some serene contemplation at St. John's Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Union Station, and make a trip to Dinosaur Ridge.

To see other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Denver day trip planning site .

In July, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
