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.
Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing) and Colorado Springs (Focus on the Family Bookstore & Garden of the Gods). The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, get a taste of the local shopping with Denver Botanic Gardens, and look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

To find more things to do, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Denver trip site .

Expect a daytime high around 79°F in September, and nighttime lows around 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
