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 outdoors at Boulder Creek Path and Eldorado Canyon. Explore hidden gems such as Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour and Dinosaur Ridge. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Evergreen (Evergreen Lake & Alderfer/Three Sisters Park), Eldorado Canyon State Park (in Eldorado Springs) and Boulder (Mount Sanitas Trail, Balloon Rides, &more). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lookout Mountain, get interesting insight from Tours, take in the exciting artwork at Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, and sample the tasty concoctions at Rock Cut Brewing Company.

To find other places to visit and tourist information, go to the Denver day trip website.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Denver. In July, daily temperatures in Denver can reach °F, while at night they dip to °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Tue) early enough to travel to Duluth.
