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.
Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo & Garden of the Gods), Estes Park (Horseback Riding Tours & Off-Road Tours) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs). And it doesn't end there: take in the exciting artwork at Denver Botanic Gardens, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church, get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, and take a memorable drive along Mount Evans Scenic Byway.

To see traveler tips and tourist information, you can read our Denver trip planner.

In May in Denver, expect temperatures between 66°F during the day and 43°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
