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've added Mount Evans, Royal Gorge Rafting and Zip Line Tours, Pike's Peak - America's Mountain, and other attractions to your itinerary. Go for a jaunt from Denver to Rocky Mountain National Park to see Emerald Lake Trail about 1h 40 min away. It doesn't end there: catch a live performance at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, go to the Denver online vacation planner .

In August, daytime highs in Denver are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
