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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and South Park City Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Emerald Lake Trail and Cherry Creek Trail. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Alderfer/Three Sisters Park (in Evergreen), Littleton (Deer Creek Canyon Park & Roxborough State Park) and Alberta Falls (in Rocky Mountain National Park). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, take an in-depth tour of Golden History Museum & Park, and grab your bike and head to Mount Falcon Castle Trail.

To see maps, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver tour planner.

In October in Denver, expect temperatures between 67°F during the day and 40°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
