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.
Kids will enjoy River Rafting & Tubing and Denver Zoo. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Hidee Gold Mine (in Central City) and Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland). There's lots more to do: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, and admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.

For reviews, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Denver tour itinerary planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
