Mid-October, First Time in Colorado w/ 6-yo, Estes Park, Boulder or Breck?

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for opinions on a family vacation destination this October. Since this will be our first trip, we would like to be able to do a variety of things without being caught up in a big city. We did a ski area in the fall before (Park City) and enjoyed the natural beauty, sparse crowds and fractional costs, but I am worried that Breck may be too similar. Boulder seems to be a lively and entertaining town but will we able to experience tranquility there? RMNP is a big draw for us as we come from Chicago and ln experience elevation in man-made structures. Is the weather typically the same for all of these places? Also, will the road that bisects the Park be closed by then? Thanks for any help you can provide!
