Hi! We are going to be arriving in Denver in July for 4 nights before boarding the Amtrak California Zephyr to San Francisco. We arrive late on the first night, and have to board the train early after the 4th night.
Tuesday - arrive DEN 9pm
Wednesday - ?
Thursday - ?
Friday - ?
Saturday - Train leaves at 8am
I was thinking that it would make sense to spend Friday in Denver & stay overnight close to the train station. We could return the rental car (not sure about details about where yet).
We were thinking of spending the other 2 days exploring RMNP and/or Boulder. We are OK with moving around & changing hotels.
Can anyone help with a good itinerary?
We are a family of 4 with 2 kids (ages 9 and 7). We like the typical family things....playing outside, swimming, mild hiking, mini golf, etc. We don't necessarily need to go to museums, aquariums, etc (unless unique) because we have done that countless times. We've never been to Colorado, so would like to see things that are unique to (what seems to be) an amazing place.
Thanks so much!
