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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Fishing Charters & Tours and Spas. Visiting The Beach at Grand Lake and Castlewood Canyon State Park will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & St Mary's Glacier), Guanella Pass (in Georgetown) and Roxborough State Park (in Littleton). And it doesn't end there: engage your brain at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, grab your bike and head to Cherry Creek Trail, and do a tasting at Balistreri Vineyards.

To find reviews, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Denver sightseeing app .

In July, daytime highs in Denver are 87°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
