      Hi, we are looking at eloping to Colorado in May 15- 21st. Since this is our first trip to Colorado, I need help deciding what area we need stay and tour. What I am thinking is Durango- Mesa Verde, train ride to Silverton, Million Dollar Hwy, Black Canyon,- Any Suggestion?? Or Estes Park- RMNP, Trail Ridge Road, and would love to see Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods but not sure about their driving distances?? Maybe there is other things to do in the area? I'm also having really hard time finding a little chapel or somewhere in either area that just does just a simple bride groom elopement ceremony. Any help with this would be appreciated!!! Thanks

    • Wanting to visit CO this summer with kids...can anyone help with itinerary?!

      Colorado Jul 13, 2015 at 9:06 AM

      My husband and I would like to go to CO for about 5-7 days in early August with our 10 and 14 year old daughters. I thought that my girls would like the CO Springs area (Garden of the Gods, Pike's Peak) and yet SW Colorado (Mesa Verde, riding the Silverton Durango Railroad) sounds interesting, too. My husband asks how can we go to CO and not visit the Rocky Mountain National Park?! Others say, don't forget about Telluride or the Great Sand Dunes! My older daughter is very open to everything while my younger one wants to ride a tree canopy zipline somewhere and pan for gold...hmm. And is there really a ghost town for her to visit as well?!

      Please, will someone point me in the right direction or suggest a doable itinerary? Are any of these places to be skipped if one is short on time? I personally am quite interested in Mesa Verde but then wonder if I am going to be able to climb all those ladders! I see the Silverton Durango Railroad ride can be combined with other activities, but we are not exactly the avid hiker-type. I understand it's impossible to see everything, and have no problem concentrating on just one area instead of driving all over the place. Usually I plan things out further in advance and hope I'm not out of luck on lodging options and the like. We likely won't be able to return to CO as a family any time soon, so this is it! Thank you in advance for any assistance!

      Hi. Traveling east coast to Denver to see back to back shows at Red Rocks and see Manitou & Pike's Peak. Confused on best lodging options considering the distance between the two sites and the airport. Is there a recommended hotel/inn that's fairly central to both places? If not, I'm thinking 2 nights near red rocks and 2 nights in CO Springs? We'll be there mid- August. Any recommendations would be helpful. Thank you in advance!

    • Train Rides through to Rockies

      Rocky Mountain National Park Jun 17, 2015 at 6:24 PM

      I am going to visit my son and his family who live near Denver (Monument is the name of the town that he lives in). We want to take a day trip to the Rocky Mountains. We would really like to take a train ride through the Rockies. We will have three small children (ages 2 to 8) with us, so it has to be kid friendly. Does anyone know of a company that gives train tours through the Rockies? Like I said, this will be a day trip so I think I am looking for a train ride that lasts between 2 to 4 hours, but I am open to suggestions. If possible, please list the web address so that I can check it out.
      Thanks so much!

      Colorado May 30, 2015 at 11:44 AM

      Hello fellow traveler! We will be traveling to Colorado during the 2nd week of August for our first time. We will be renting a cabin for only 2 night in  Estes Park.

      1) Are there any recommendation of specific lodges to rent for the 2 nights? There will be 4 of us, not looking for anything too fancy or expensive because we would like to maximize our time outdoors.

      2) Is there anything specific you would recommend as a "must do" while in Estes Park and National Mountain Rocky Park?

      Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

      Trying to plan the ultimate 30th for my husband - Traveling to Denver

      Denver May 11, 2015 at 9:45 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I am from Ottawa, Canada, and I am planning a surprise trip to Denver CO for my husbands 30th. He is a MASSIVE Die-Hard Broncos Fan and it has always been his dream to see a Broncos home game in Denver.

      I am purchasing tickets for the Oct 4th game so we will be in Denver that week. (I am also looking for suggestions on where the best seats are in the stadium... I don't want to mess this up and I'm sure some are better than others - trying to keep it around $300-$400 a ticket)

      Other than the Tailgate party, stadium tour and of course.. the GAME!! I am looking for some fun ideas for the remainder of our trip.

      I want this trip to be all about him and his favorite things.
      Other than LOVING anything to do with football, he is into vintage muscle cars, scotch/whiskey, cigars and of course a good steak. All things I would like to treat him to while we are there.

      I of course also want to explore the beauty of Denver, and really just looking for fun things to do and places to see!
      Any and all suggestions are very appreciated.
      Thank you all so much! :)

      Emily.

    • Colorado trip in early may

      Colorado Mar 9, 2015 at 4:51 PM

      My boyfriend and I will be traveling out to Denver for a concert on May 11th. We will most likely be flying into Denver either the night of 5/6 or late morning on 5/7 and heading home on 5/12. I know we will be staying in Denver the night of 5/11. I have never been to Colorado. We love the outdoors, wildlife,history, and hiking. We would like to possibly go rafting but I know that the timing is not ideal. We would like to see as much of the beautiful scenery out there as possible. We are not big fans of the more touristy or developed areas but can tolerate them if it is the best option for a place to stay.

      We have the option of staying in a free condo in Steamboat Springs but I am not sure if that is the best location for us. After doing some research it does not really look like there is as much in that area as there is in other parts of the state. I originally was looking at RMNP but was deterred because Trail ridge road will not be open yet. I have also considered doing two nights in Steamboat and two nights on the way out or back somewhere in between near Breckenridge etc. The other option that looked very nice was SW Colorado, Telluride in particular. Especially if I can return in the future to do RMNP. My concern with that is drive time with us only having a short visit. I will say that I do love scenic drives and it sounds like that one is beautiful. I thought if we did that we may want to drive straight there but then stay a night somewhere in the middle on the way back.

      As you can tell I am totally overwhelmed by all of the great sounding options that Colorado has to offer. I am also very indecisive, heh. Hopefully I will get to return to Colorado at some point in the future but if there was a chance that this would be my only trip, what would you recommend? Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
