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.
Get in touch with nature at St Mary's Glacier and Climbing Tours. Explore hidden gems such as Guanella Pass and Forney Museum of Transportation. Step out of Denver to go to Georgetown and see Hotel de Paris Museum, which is approximately 56 minutes away. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Clyfford Still Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, examine the collection at National Ballpark Museum, and cast your line with a fishing tour.

To find photos, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Denver online trip itinerary planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Denver. August in Denver sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 58°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to travel to Sedona.
