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 Dinosaur Ridge and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 16th Street Mall and Mother Cabrini Shrine. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Rocky Mountain National Park (Alberta Falls, Emerald Lake Trail, & more), Benson Park Sculpture Garden (in Loveland) and Arapahoe Basin (in Keystone). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Odell Brewing Company, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, and examine the collection at Argo Mill and Tunnel.

For other places to visit, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Denver online itinerary planner .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 66°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
