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 Lily Lake and Cherry Creek State Park. Visiting Roxborough State Park and Alberta Falls will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Idaho Springs (St Mary's Glacier & River Rafting & Tubing), Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Cub Lake Trail, Emerald Lake Trail, & more). On the 29th (Sat), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Arapahoe Basin. There's much more to do: stroll through Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church, steep yourself in history at Dinosaur Ridge, and get your game on at Tiny Town Miniature Golf.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Denver trip itinerary planning site .

In June in Denver, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 55°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
