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: Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing) and Colorado Springs (Focus on the Family Bookstore & Garden of the Gods). Pack the 27th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and get a taste of the local shopping with 16th Street Mall.

To see maps, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver road trip planning tool.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Denver. In September in Denver, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 52°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to travel to New Castle.
