Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs areas

Jump to last reply

Hello. A friend and myself in our 60's have rented a vacation house close to City Park (Denver) for a week starting May 9. We thought that would be a central place to see Denver as well as travel to CO Springs, & Boulder. We are good with day trips but want to return to the cottage at the end of the day. We would like to get a sampling of the mountains up close, but are not hikers - just average walkers. We enjoy eating at local breakfast places and cafes, and inexpensive-moderately priced restaurants, but with good food. We are all about casual comfort.

What are the must see and must do places and things in Denver, Colorado Springs and Boulder that would fit into a week? Please mention any particularly interesting neighborhoods that are good to drive thru, or not-to-challenging mountain drive that will give us a scenic ride. And please mention places to eat!

We are not the most adventure- some people, we've got a few bumps and grinds, but we enjoy getting around and exploring new places and meeting new people.

Thank you..
