Need help for our 5 night vacation in DENVER

Jump to last reply

It will be our first family trip to the Denver area (in place of going to New York City) during this coming springbreak. We'll be landing on Friday at different times and terminals so we have to stay close to the airport for the first night and drive out on Saturday to BOULDER for 2 nights and then drive to downtown Denver on Monday to stay at the Grand Hyatt for 2 nights before flying back to San Francisco on the following Wednesday.at noon.

IS DOWNTOWN worth 2 nights?
Our family appreciates good foodie restaurants, some shopping and urban sightseeing, I would appreciate any good suggestions/tips. Is downtown more enjoyable on weekdays or over a weekend? Do we need a car to enjoy downtown? Is it worth driving out/taking a taxi to the Cherry Creek neighborhood? My wife and college age daughter love shopping.

GLENWOOD SPRINGS vs COLORADO SPRINGS?
If there's not a whole lot to enjoy in downtown, we would consider one night in Glenwood Springs or Colorado Springs instead (we don't do extensive nature hikes). I would appreciate any feedback, thank you.
