one full day in Denver - advise please

we are due to spend 3 weeks touring in late July/early august. We start in Denver and have one full day before we make our way next to Estes park. We are from the UK, so what would you suggest we do on our full day in Denver and what must we see. also any idea on what the weather will be like? We also have a 12 year old daughter.

Many Thanks.

Denver will be hot more than likely. Early morning temps around high 50s, maybe low 60s... highs in the 90s.

At that time of year, it is common to have the afternoon clouds and sometimes even a thunderstorm. Many times it just gets a little cloudy but doesn't rain.

Denver has many offerings. You can tour the Denver Mint, enjoy the Botanic Gardens, go to Elitch Gardens (amusement park), Colo History Museum... Can you give more indication of your preferences? what kinds of things do you like to do?

Here's an article that can give you some additional ideas of things to do around Denver (and these are all free):

Again, if you can give us an idea of what types of things appeal to you, we can be more helpful.

Just came back from CO. and spent one full day in Denver. The afternoon we arrived went to a baseball game. Next day spent the morning at the Natural Science Museum, had lunch at the Cherry Cricket, caught a movie at 16th Street, and had dinner at an Irish Pub near the ball park. It's a relatively small city and you can get around easily if you have a car. Cheers!
