Denver

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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Denver Art Museum and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Get in touch with nature at River Rafting & Tubing and Photography Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Estes Park (Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, Horseback Riding Tours, & more), Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook, Trail Ridge Road, & more) and Idaho Springs (Argo Mill and Tunnel & Summit Lake Park). The adventure continues: get a taste of the local shopping with Denver Botanic Gardens, appreciate the extensive heritage of 16th Street Mall, explore the galleries of Molly Brown House Museum, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans.

To see reviews, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver visit planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
