6 days in denver solo traveler 25 in August-help

Hi All

I'm travelling to Denver on the 10th of August I've got 6 days until I meet my friends to head to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Ultimately I'm not sure where to stay I was hoping to day trips to Aspen and Boulder from Denver is this possible by public transport as I'm nervous of driving?Alternativly any one recommend tours etc

I'd also like to go to a rodeo or football game but not sure if any things on mid August?

I'm going to be on my own so would like to stay somewhere nice and good for socialising as I'm I'm 25, and any events that are good for meeting others would be great!

All advice is greatly appreciated and needed! I've not booked anything so whatever suggestions you have would be great!

Thank you!!

Day trips are easily possible to Boulder since boulder is served by RTD the local public transportation district. Aspen is many hours away and really is only worth the drive if you can stay at least two nights there. (it is a 3.5 to four hour drive each way). It is preseason for Football- broncos play at home on August 24 and 29. As far as Rodeo, August is county fair rodeos Jefferson county or Boulder are probably your best bets. There is the National Rodeo hall of fame in Colorado Springs which does Team roping two saturdays in August which could give you a glimpse.
