About Colorado

Jump to last reply

DW and I are going to Colorado to visit DS#1 who has an apartment (since yesterday) in Capitol Hill. He's going to be a teacher. We fly in on thursday the 9th and out on saturday the 18th. We stay thursday the 9th and friday the 10th at a B&B near DS.

He'll be able to go with us saturday to Boulder or Estes Park, but then we have to return to Denver so he can start work on Monday. Then, sadly, we don't know what to do. I know this sort of question can be very annoying to seasoned travel advisors, but what do you think we should do?

Should we take a train to Grand Junction, rent a car and drive to Durango and back to Denver? Or should we go to Steamboat Springs or some place not too far from Denver so we don't spend all our time traveling? What's a really pretty place to spend three or four nights not too far from Denver where we can appreciate the window treatments yet feel like we're in the Rocky Mountains. A pleasant cottage or B&B with wi-fi by a lake nestled by towering mountains with free bikes and kayaks would be nice.

We are not as young as we used to be. My volleyball skills have deteriorated and my bike has a motor (which enables me to pass people in spandex, which is really quite thrilling). We like stylish places that don't cost much, like the Jane Hotel in NYC or the Delano in South Beach if it were a lot cheaper. We like to kayak. Swiming would be nice. Hiking is nice. I haven't been to Colorado but used to go to Arizona to visit my parents. Maybe Durango is too much like Arizona.

And what about Wyoming? Anybody in Denver ever go to Wyoming or do they try to stay in Colorado?

I've made this more difficult than it should be haven't I? Where would you go for three or four nights from Denver with a rental car? That's what I should have asked.
