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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Estes Park (Rocky Mountain Gateway Gift Shop, Horseback Riding Tours, & more), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Summit Lake Park). Pack the 3rd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and contemplate the long history of Denver Union Station.

To find photos, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver trip planner .

In August, daytime highs in Denver are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
