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.
Start off your visit on the 11th (Tue): tour the pleasant surroundings at Dinosaur Ridge, grab your bike and head to Mount Falcon Castle Trail, then see the interesting displays at Colorado Railroad Museum, and finally fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To find traveler tips, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver road trip app.

Lubbock to Denver is an approximately 9.5-hour car ride. You can also fly; or drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference. Traveling from Lubbock in August, expect Denver to be little chillier, temps between 85°F and 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) to allow time to drive to Colorado Springs.
