Help with Colorado 10-day August Itinerary...

Jump to last reply

We are traveling first 10 days of August to Colorado with 11yo dcs. Fly in/out of Denver. We have 10 nights. We are going to see Rockies game the 2nd night we are there so I guess the first two days we will spend in Denver. Then we want to see the state - I know it's a big state with lots to see - I really want to go to Mesa Verde - figure we'd go west and then down thru Ouray to Durango. But how do we go back to Denver - what route and which towns to stay in? And do we have time to go to RMNP? Problem is my dh does not want to feel like he is just in a car driving our whole vacation and he does not want to stay in places for just one night the whole trip. Not sure I can figure it out! Any input is appreciated!

Was thinking something like:
Nights 1/2 - Denver

Night 3 - RMNP?

Nights 4/5 - Aspen

Night 6 - Ouray

Nights 7-9 Durango

Night 10? Somewhere on way back to Denver

Leave on the 11th day late in day

What do you think???
