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.
For shopping fun, head to 16th Street Mall or American Museum of Western Art. Take a break from the city and head to Fishing Charters & Tours and Cub Lake Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Castlewood Canyon State Park (in Franktown), St Mary's Glacier (in Idaho Springs) and Roxborough State Park (in Littleton). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Emerald Lake Trail, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, learn about winemaking at Balistreri Vineyards, and sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour.

To see maps, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Denver day trip planning app .

In August in Denver, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 58°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
