Denver Area Itinerary Suggestions

Jump to last reply

Husband and I just booked this itinerary. Any opinions, suggestions on routing (especially) or anything else would be helpful. This is for mid-June.

Day 1 - Fly into Denver and stay at University Inn Boulder. Wanted to be within walking distance to Pearl St. district. May visit Coors Brewery on the way. May stop at Red Rocks Amphitheater on the way.

Day 2 & 3 - Murphy's River Lodge at Estes Park. Will get there on a Fri. I had read traveling up Route 7 to the RMNP entrance might be less crowded.? Realize there is road construction. Main goal is scenic and short hikes.

Day 4 - Spirit Lake Lodge at Grand River; hiking and checking out the town.

Day 5 - Travel towards Black Hawk to stay at Ameristar (not big gamblers, so not in a hurry to get there!) i.e. a stopover before Colorado Springs. Plan to check out Central City. Open to any suggestions of area sights and best routing.

Day 6 - Drive to Colorado Springs. Another alternative for stopping at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Possibly drive or take railroad cog up to Pikes Peak and some of the following: Air Force Academy, Old Colorado, or Manitou Springs, and definitely Garden of the Gods. Staying at The Lodge at Garden of the Gods.

Drive back to Denver to stay at Best Western Plus on Quebec Street since they have a shuttle to downtown. May possibly change this to somewhere in the Cherry Creek North area.

Our main goal is scenery, and we enjoy walking around unique areas - nature-wise or shops and restaurants (tend to do the latter at night). Can't wait to check out the area and thanks for any help!
