Will be in Denver for B'Day, staying in Tech Center area. What gentlemen's club would you recommend, friendlier the better? Will have my own transportation so does not have to be in the Tech area. Also any dance bars?
Thanks any input appreciated.
I am going to spend 3 full days in Colorado Springs starting from May 26. Is it possible to see the following places during 3 days: Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge Brige, Pikes Peak, Cave of the winds, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Cripple creak railroad, Miramont Castle and Seven Falls. I would be very grateful if somebody could advice optimum itinerary.
Thank you in advance
A few friends and I are vacationing out to Denver and need some insight on the best place to stay for guys in there early 20s. Specifically an area with a good vibe and nightlife. I heard downtown denver is good place to research.
We plan on hiking, going to coors field, and Red Rocks amphitheater. Any other ideas for things to do would also be great!
Hi, I'm booking a trip to boulder area in mid June (some business, some fun). Considering relocation options (before they are forced on me) and I would love to have a relaxed conversation with some local residents about the area. So I guess the first step is to ask: Are there any VT locals still active around Boulder that would like to have lunch/dinner/drinks and share a little knowledge about the area? Hope so!
I am going to Denver June 6-8 with my wife and 14-year-old. Essentially, our "free time" will be Friday evening and all day Saturday (before an evening flight). I recognize you can't begin to enjoy all Denver has to offer in such a short time. But if we can only catch 1 or 2 things while we are there, what should it/they be?
Thanks in advance...
me and a friend are going to denver to see two shows at the ogden theatre in may. we're looking for a hotel that is reasonably close to the ogden theater, BUT more importantly walking distance to bars in the downtown area (which seems to be an ok area to go out at night?). we're on a budget, so price is definitely a consideration. we will probably go out after the concerts at the ogden and on a third night just go out to party in general. is there good nightlife around the ogden? if not, where would be a good place to stay within walking distance of good nightlife that is an easy/cheap cab ride to the ogden? thanks in advance for your help.
What are the perks for paying for the most expensive train cars on the Silverton Durango?
I'll be coming up for a weekend ski trip last weekend of March, flying into Denver, driving up early on a Saturday, and returning Tuesday afternoon for an evening flight home. I've recenly been aware of some construction work at the Twin Tunnels near Idaho Springs. Am I going to face construction delays going to Summit County, and returning to DIA?
If we fly into Denver (only to hop on the overnight Amtrak the next morning) what is the best (cheapest) way to get from the airport to the train station?
Hello all, I'm taking my girlfriend and friends to Colorado in March and id like to know of any scenic roads and sights open at that time. We'll be staying in Estes park but im willing to drive about 3.5hrs just to get there since ill be in CO for a week. Thank you in advance and im open to any suggestions.
I am new to grand junction I would like to take my wife out country dancing is there any good places to go on a Saturday night
Looking at USA holiday The itinerary says we are on the train overnight between Chicago and Denver is this journey scenic? Or will we not be missing much by travelling overnight ? Thank you Moira
My family and I (husband, two daughters 11 & 8, plus 3 dogs) will be spending the summer in Denver (we are from Phx). We have narrowed down the two neighborhoods we are interested in and have found several pet-friendly homes, but we can't decide between Highlands Neighborhood and Washington Park. What are the differences? Would you recommend one over the other? Here is what we would like: walk to shops, restaurants, store, etc., parks nearby, safe and kid/pet-friendly neighborhoods. Is one closer to downtown Denver, can you bike to downtown? Here in Phoenix, you have to drive to everything, so we are really looking forward to walking and biking :) Any feedback would be MUCH appreciated!! Thank you!
Hi We are spending a week or more (of a longer road trip) hiking and camping our way through CO in early July. We will be entering in the SW and heading for Boulder to finish. We have only been to CO once about 10 years ago and spent a night in Boulder before driving out via Rocky Mtn Natl Park. Our itinerary is flexible and we want to do some of the best hikes the state has to offer en route. Can anyone recommend any top day hikes? We are very fit, experienced mountaineers and like to hike high although we won't have full mountaineering gear with us on this trip. What are the best hikes/hiking and camping areas that we could take in en route? Many thanks, Sam
Hi Me and my Husband will be spending a few days in Denver flying in from the UK at the end of July. We only have 2 nights in Denver so would would be very grateful to hear of any recommendations on things to see before heading off to Lusk. We will be returning to Denver at the end of the trip to spend a few days in the Rocky Mountain NP. Also, interested in what the weather will be like that time of year? Thanks Kirsty
Me and my girfriend are going on the road to visit 30 different national parks from Pa to Ca and we wanted to spend some time in Colorado. Were in the planning process right now and we were wondering what the nightlife was like and any recommended pubs or breweries, dance clubs, etc. Were both 22 years old so were looking to have a good time. We are looking for a genuine experience not just tourist attractions..
Would love suggestions, info and advice for a budget-friendliesh family ISO ski and family hang-time vacation. Kids are solid intermediate skiers yet have never been to a ski resort out West. They want to continue a family tradition of midnight tubing to bring in the New Year. We (parents) can't ski anymore and would love to sneak in a photography worshop/tour. If it would be up to them, they'd ski, ski, ski, ETA together, watch a gámez in t.v.; up to US, we'd drive around without itinerary and go to every national Park around the 4 córners. feel free to revisit itinerary/destinations. And pelase pardon typos and whatnots as I have a lousyscreen and a Spanish predictive text programa! From this and other travel sites I've come up with a rough itinerary? 1. Arrive Durango noonish, rent a 4WD and drive into town. Sleep in Durango. 2.shuttle to Durango Ski Resort (DSR) then back into town. Sleep in Durango. 3. As "b" 4. As above half day and leave Resort, looping around 145 straight to Ouray. Explore, ice hiking - watching, I guess. Sleep there for 2 nights. Springs(?) 5 Teluride skiing and parents do 1/2 day photo sunset workshop. Drive back to Ouray 6. Drive to ?????for New Years tubing family ritual. We need to end un close to Durango that last night because we leave the next a.m. From Durango airport Jan 1st. Q: where to go for ski rentals for Telluride-at Resort or somewhere less expensive? Q: I've only seen 1 photo worshop that offers 1/2 day tours and it is based in Teluride. Any suggestions? Q: given the unpredictable weather and terrain I'm assuming we'll need to be flexible about what to do when and How to get there, which we're very cool with,except that Im assuming most hotels won't be (?) Q. ice climbing looks cool but am assuming it won't be worth thinking about since we'd only have 1 day to try it.(.) Q: Does it make sense to staying in Ouray for 3 nights and drive to Teluride for a ski day. If so, isn't it too dangerous to drive back to Ouray at night even with a 4WD? Q: I've heard about small airport Car rental places having higher rates. If we fly into Durango, would we have another option? Worth considering not renting a car for the 1st data we'd stay in Durango and shuttle(?) into Durango Mtn Resort? Q: is there godo cél phone sígnal around the área? We'd loveto drive around some while the kids are skiing but won't feel comfortable doing so if we can't be reached. Thanks!!

Heading to CO tomorrow, kind of throwing this trip together at the last minute and don't really know much about it. Here is our rough itinerary though: 8/31 - Arrive in Denver at 6:45 pm, sleep in Boulder 9/1 - Hike Bear Creek and South Boulder Peak in the morning, then check out Boulder the rest of the day (maybe go to Phish?) 9/2 - Pick up the car, drive to Loveland Pass and climb Mt. Sniktau, then continuing west to Breckenridge where we have a place to Couchsurf 9/3 - Climb Elbert 9/4 - Fly out of Denver at 3:15 pm What does everyone think of this plan? These hikes/climbs are rather ambiguously picked by us, so please let us know if there are better options in the areas we will be staying. Also, assuming we do climb Elbert, should we sleep in Breckenridge the night before, or is it much better to camp closer to the trailhead or on the mountain? Thanks in advance for your help!
While growing up in Colorado in the 50's-80's I spent many of those years in the Basalt and Reileys Ranch along the Frying Pan, even before the resivior was built, and learned how to fish the river and even to this day, Still consider the area my Home away from Home. Can any of your members send mew pictures of the river as it now looks from Basalt to the resivior (Rudi) and also reserch a place I used to stay with my dad, called Reilys Ranch along the tiver about 10 miles (I think) from Basalt. I would also like to know if anyone remembers the Lucksinger family that had a lake and a parcel of ranch land above the town of Basalt? I in later years learned that they sold the property to the state of Colorado and the lake was used as a hatchery for trout populations for the entire area. Would really like to know if the Lucksinger clan is even in any phone directories in the area? Thank you all very much. Roger Willis in California.
My husband and I are contemplating a two-week vacation in September – likely starting in Albuquerque and driving counter-clockwise through Colorado, Utah, and Arizona before returning to Albuquerque. We would appreciate any tips, warnings, recommendations, etc., anyone could offer us. Such as: What weather can we anticipate during that time? Are there some roads we should avoid (we’ll be renting a medium size sedan – not an SUV)? Anything in that general area which is considered a must-see/must-do (keeping in mind I’m 55 and my husband is 65)? Or anything else you’d deem that we should know before we go. Thanks for your help!
My wife and I are relocating to SW Colorado and were recommended Bayfield for its proximity to Durango and affordability. When researching the Forest Lakes subdivision we noticed a large amount of houses for sale, and foreclosures. The homes seem reasonable priced. Is there something wrong with this neighborhood? We have driven through it many years ago and it seemed ok. Has it changed? Are there infrastructure problems? Plowing, water, sewer, etc.?
I'm headed up to Garden of the Gods/Pikes Peak region in July, driving up from New Mexico and would like to enjoy a local brew while I'm passing through- maybe as stop for lunch before we head to the campground. Any suggestions for me? I like cozy/casual atmosphere, nothing fancy, I will be with kids and dressed for a camping trip. Center/West side of town preferred.
We are spending 2 days in Durango at the end of September. We don't want to spend a fortune on a hotel (Strater!) but have been told that the cheaper hotels are at the north end of town, and that area is not safe. Any thoughts on this? Recommendations?
I'm going to be in Denver for a conference for 4 days (3 nights) in a few weeks. Anything worth seeing that will be available in the evenings?
will be coming thru SS in early June on a motorcoach tour. Interested in an area where the senior citizens can shop (walking) and perhaps eat a reasonably priced evening meal.(preferably in the same area. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Landing at Denver circa 19.00 hours and then have to get through formalities Staying at Comfort Inn Downtown - any suggestions for food - not Indian, Chinese, Shushi etc but happy to go with a decent burger/pizza. Would have prefered America - just don't want to get ripped off Thanx
I'm looking forward to doing some spring skiing next week and I'm going to be staying in Beaver Creek. I'm just staying there because I got a good deal at a hotel there. I definitely want to go skiing in Vail, but I'm not sure how convenient it is to stay in Beaver Creek and go skiing in Vail. I'm staying at The Charter (http://www.thecharter.com), because of the deal and I'm sure I'll have some fun there in Beaver Creek too. Has anyone out there stayed in Beaver Creek and skiied in Vail? Please let me know and give me some tips! Thanks a ton!
Hi! I am flying into Denver in the middle of August and visting friends from Boulder. I have found a large variety of white water rafting options in the Denver/ Boulder area and I am hoping someone might have a suggestion on which is the best? I know it may be personal preference but I would love any imput to go on instead of guessing blindly. (the location of the rafting trip would influence if we stayed closer to Denver or Boulder, so both are options) thank you so much!
