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.
Kids will enjoy Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Get some historical perspective at Denver Union Station and 16th Street Mall. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Mother Cabrini Shrine (in Golden) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Cherry Creek State Park, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum.

For reviews, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Denver day trip planning app .

In August, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
