Summer with kids

Hi. Can anyone recommend condo lodging for early August with a pool. Is close to town the right answer? We have two girls 7 and 10. We are looking at around $150 per nite. Also is rafting still flowing that time of year and if so any recommendations for trips that fit kids my girls ages? Any short hikes close by say 1 or 2 miles? Any 13ers that are close for the dad to climb? Also any other activities for the girls close by? Thanks!

-Main Street Station

-Mountain Thunder Lodge

-Trailsend (You might get a two bedroom condo at that price-pool is across the street)

-Powderhorn-pool is across the road

Rafting: Yes, it should still be going early August. The Browns Canyon is a great trip out of Buena Vista. There are several companies that run it. The water is lower by August, so it will be a great trip for the both the girls.

Hikes: Drive up Boreas Pass Rd to the parking area. There are several hikes from there. I would suggest stopping by the welcome center and pick up a map.

The closest 14er is Quandary. Make sure he starts by 6am, so he can be back down before the afternoon showers hit.

Have Fun!!!
