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.
Get some historical perspective at Dinosaur Ridge and Chapel on the Rock. Take a break from the city and head to Adams Falls Trail and St Mary's Glacier. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Boulder Arts and Crafts Gallery (in Boulder), Fort Collins (Horsetooth Mountain Open Space & Odell Brewing Company) and Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg). There's still lots to do: take a memorable drive along Guanella Pass, admire the natural beauty at Benson Park Sculpture Garden, get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

To see reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Denver trip planner .

In September, daytime highs in Denver are 79°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
