4 nights in/near Denver with kids?

Jump to last reply

Hi all,
We will be in Denver for 4 nights in July 2013. We arrive late on the first night (flight gets in at 8:30, and it is a time change for us). After the 4th night, we will be getting on an Amtrak train leaving at 8:00 am. We are 2 adults & 2 children (9 & 7). I am looking for a suggested itinerary for the 3 full days that we will have to explore.

We are interested in seeing things that cannot be seen elsewhere (so do not necessary need to see aquariums or museums unless very unique).

Should we head to Estes Park, Boulder, somewhere else?

We are usually OK with moving around, so different hotels would be fine. I am assuming that we would rent a car at the airport & drop (somewhere???) before getting on the train.

I'm just in the beginning stages of planning, so any help & direction would be helpful.

Thanks!
