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 discover tucked-away gems like Arapahoe Basin and Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. Take a break from the city and head to Cherry Creek State Park and Adams Falls Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Rocky Mountain National Park (Sheep Lakes, Many Parks Curve Overlook, & more), Fort Collins (Annual Flower Trial Garden & Lost Prairie Winery) and Idaho Springs (St Mary's Glacier & Summit Lake Park). There's much more to do: trek along Roxborough State Park, get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, explore the landscape on two wheels at Cherry Creek Trail, and admire the landmark architecture of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Denver trip planning site .

In May, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 66°F, while at night they dip to 43°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
