Colorado - Trip Advice

Jump to last reply

Looking for some guidance from the local Colorado community.

I am coming to Colorado in three weeks and trying to figure out my itinerary. Here is my initial thought on itinerary. I have 4 days, possibly 5 then off to Park City, by car. I am flexible to stay 2 nights in one place so looking for recommendations.

Day 1 - From airport, stop in Boulder for lunch and then up to Estes Park to stay the night and see Rocky Mountain National Park. Any hotel recommendations? I am looking at McGregor Mountain Lodge.

Day 2- More time at RMN park then head towards Aspen. Here is my question: which route from Estes/RMN should I take towards Aspen to maximize my time and see the scenery? Not sure how long this will take so thinking of different places to stay.

Day 3 - See Vail, Glenwood Springs and head to Aspen. Stay the night if not too expensive (likely will be) or another suggestion nearby?

Day 4 - Leave Aspen area to head to Telluride. Stay the night there.

Day 5 - Leave Telluride to Park City.

So many beautiful places to see, and only 5 days max. I have been to Estes, Aspen and Breckenridge before. My hubby only Breckenridge for ski season. I want him to see the beauty of the state in 5 days. Thoughts?

Thanks!
Vicki
