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.
Explore hidden gems such as Guanella Pass and Emerald Lake Trail. Get outdoors at Dinosaur Ridge and The Beach at Grand Lake. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Estes Park (Snowy Peaks Winery, Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, & more), Ameristar Casino Resort Spa (in Black Hawk) and St Mary's Glacier (in Idaho Springs). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Benson Park Sculpture Garden, admire the masterpieces at Leanin' Tree Museum & Sculpture Garden Of Western Art, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey, and admire the landmark architecture of Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 22°C, while at night they dip to 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
