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 find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Spas (in Estes Park), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Garden of the Gods (in Colorado Springs). Pack the 22nd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. The adventure continues: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.

For where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Denver trip site .

August in Denver sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 58°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
