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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Golden (Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Mother Cabrini Shrine, &more), The Broomfield Bay Aquatic Park (in Broomfield) and Shadow Mountain Gallery (in Evergreen). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, buy something for everyone on your list at 16th Street Mall, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, and get interesting insight from Oxotic Supercar Driving Experience.

To find ratings, maps, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Denver attractions planner.

Los Angeles to Denver is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone difference when traveling from Los Angeles to Denver is 1 hour. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Los Angeles in August since evenings lows in Denver dip to 58°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
