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.
Step out of the city life by going to Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Emerald Lake Trail. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Horsetooth Mountain Open Space and St Mary's Glacier. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Rocky Mountain National Park (Sheep Lakes, Many Parks Curve Overlook, &more), Annual Flower Trial Garden (in Fort Collins) and Arapahoe Basin (in Keystone). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Roxborough State Park, explore the striking landscape of Summit Lake Park, meet the residents at The Wild Animal Sanctuary, and steep yourself in history at Dinosaur Ridge.

To find ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Denver road trip planning tool.

May in Denver sees daily highs of 66°F and lows of 43°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
