Guys Trip to Colorado

Thinking about doing a buddy's bachelor party in Colorado. Looking to go somewhere we could do a little white water rafting (we're all inexperienced so nothing crazy), hiking, hit up some local bars. We'd like to rent a nice cabin or condo. There will most likely be 6-8 of us, and we would be coming in the 2nd or 3rd week of June. Any suggestions on what areas we should look into? Thanks!

I think that Breckenridge makes for a good town for a "guys" trip.

tons of condos to choose from. Summer is pretty affordable also, you might look at some of the private houses too.

Breckenridge would be great, with easy access from Denver. Vail and Aspen come to mind, as well. If you could come in to Durango, (Frontier Airlines, maybe?) that would be a great spot, too. Crested Butte and Telluride would be fun.

Telluride is a great spot with some good bar options. Beautiful, historic mining town. June 20 thru 23 will be the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, a BIG event. Town will be very crowded then. There are good condo options in both Telluride and Mountain Village, with a free gondola between the two. If you plan on partying late... stay in Telluride, the gondola closes at midnight.

I'd advise to make Colorado Springs your base place with plenty of fun things to do, good food and evening entertainment too, and it's also easy go south-west, north-west from here.

IMO Breckenridge can be too high for you, it's at 9600 ft, versus Colo Sprgs is at 6200 ft above the sea level.

You are kidding right tour guide? Is that because you do not offer tours to Breck. Colorado Springs would be one of the LAST places I'd suggest for a "guys" trip. A family vacation perhaps but not a bachelor party. Jeez.
