Help with Itinerary Denver to Moab please

Jump to last reply

We are retired couple from FL flying into Denver. Originally thought we might stay in a condo at Dillon for 3 nights after driving through RMNP, but now wonder if you have some better ideas for us. We have not visited Denver before - and in general are not city people or "shoppers" and we are somewhat limited to short, "flat" walks. (Joys of getting older.) We like scenic drives!

So, please help us fill in the blanks - as in, what would YOU do?
Sept 7 - we arrive Denver 6 PM
Sept 8 - explore Denver (suggestions? Is the Mint worth a visit? Overnight in Denver.
Sept 9 - Stay in Denver a third night or another city close by? OR drive to Estes Park and drive through RMNP - stay at Grand Lake, just outside the park.
Sept 10 - stay another night in Grand Lake to go back into RMNP and look around some more?
Sept 11 - ?? (depends on whether we spend two or three nights in Denver area.
Sept 12 - check into our motel in Moab by the end of the day. This is a "travel" day on the road.

So the bottom line - should we explore Denver/area for a few days or spend more time inside RMNP. (DH gets bored easily....while I can sit and stare at mountains/read a book and be perfectly content. Marriage is all about compromise. :-) )
