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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Byers-Evans House and Forney Museum of Transportation. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Fishing Charters & Tours and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Roxborough State Park (in Littleton), St Mary's Glacier (in Idaho Springs) and Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge (in Commerce City). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Alberta Falls, examine the collection at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, admire the landmark architecture of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.

In June, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
