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 16th Street Mall and Molly Brown House Museum. Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Museum of Nature & Science are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from Denver with a short trip to River Rafting & Tubing in Idaho Springs, about 52 minutes away. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Denver Union Station, sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, see where the action happens at Coors Field, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver visit planner.

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Denver. Expect a daytime high around 87°F in July, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) to allow time to drive to Morrison.
