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.
Venture out of the city with trips to River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Cave of the Winds Mountain Park (in Manitou Springs). There's lots more to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, view the masterpieces at Denver Botanic Gardens, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans.

For reviews, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver day trip tool.

In September in Denver, expect temperatures between °F during the day and °F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
