What do you think of this itinerary for August family trip to Colorado?

Jump to last reply

Planning a family vacation in August - 10 nights - fly in/out of Denver - children are 11yo. They want to see a Rockies game and I really want to get to SW Colorado...not major hikers - would like to see some sights, do rafting, a little hiking, train ride, ghost town - things that 11yo would like.

I was thinking first 3 nights in Boulder (one of those nights we'd see Rockies game), 1 night in Glenwood Springs (?), drive to Durango for 3 nights and we can go to Mesa Verde, Ouray, ride the Silverton rairoad..then I'm not sure after that - I'd like to get to Colorado Springs and see Garden of Gods - do I need to stop one night along the way? Spend two nights in Colorado Springs? My husband, by the way, does not want to feel like he is driving the entire vacation so trying to plan it so we have a few places that we can stay for 3 nights.

Advice is appreciated!
