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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Water World and Argo Mill and Tunnel. Kids will appreciate attractions like Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and River Rafting & Tubing. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Golden History Museum & Park (in Golden) and St Mary's Glacier (in Idaho Springs). There's more to do: examine the collection at Forney Museum of Transportation and explore the activities along Crown Hill Park.

To find where to stay, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read Denver travel itinerary planner .

In July, daytime highs in Denver are 87°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
