Colorado in the summer!

Jump to last reply

Hello! I've just discovered these forum and got such wonderful responses from a previous post. To anyone reading and responding, thank you in advance for taking the time. I promise to return the favor when I return!

​I have been searching the information here on the boards, and wanted to get some opinions from experts here regarding a summer trip to Colorado. I have some parameters based on the previous posts here, and would love to hear your opinion on where to stay over night, hotels/resorts, companies to use for rafting, and sites to see. I'm so excited to see what you might say!

Here are some of our parameters/details:

Family of four, two young teens.

We are flying in and out of Denver and renting a car.

We are staying 5 or 6 nights. We'd like to stay at least 2 nights in each location. (so for five nights 2/3 or for six nights 2/2/2 or 3/3). We don't like to go to a new place each night.​

We don't like to drive more than 2.5 hours in between days - the shorter the drive, the better actually. We are okay with not seeing everything in the state! Just want to have a nice relaxing time.

We want to raft and buena vista seems like a good spot, although I'm not sure we want to stay there. Opinions? Other places to raft Class II and III?

We are traveling in late July.

We want to do great hikes, visit cool little towns, and have really nice mountain views from hotels.

We've heard Breckenridge could be a great place to stay for a couple of nights? If so, we'd like to stay close to restaurants. Any street recommendations?

Thanks everyone in advance! Any recommendations for trip itinerary are welcome!
