Going to be in Colorado for 4 days in Aug. Suggestions?

I want to spend 1.5 days in Denver. Then what?

I will have a car so I was thinking about either heading north to Boulder and Fort Collins. Or heading south to Colorado Springs and maybe Royal Gorge Bridge. Or just heading west into the ski resort towns.

I am 25 and am just looking for a good time and beautiful scenery. Which route is the best?

Head up to Estes Park, drive through RMNP on Trail Ridge Road, come down the "other side" and go down to I70 and head west, stop when you see something you like.
Head toward Aspen.

At 25, you might enjoy staying in Boulder more than Denver. Then head west from there. Your options are endless, depending on your budget and your preferences.
