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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Emerald Lake Trail and Alberta Falls. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: The Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg), Hidee Gold Mine (in Central City) and Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland). Spend the 12th (Fri) on the water with a fishing tour. There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, and see the interesting displays at Forney Museum of Transportation.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Denver road trip planning app .

In July, daytime highs in Denver are 87°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
