Step out of Denver with an excursion to Summit Lake Park in Idaho Springs--about 1h 20 min away. The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, and get a new perspective on nature at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

To find maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver trip planning app.
