    Will be spending 3 days in Denver in mid September. Any must things to do or see?

    Take highway 36 to Boulder in the mid morning and enjoy walking around pearl street for a couple hours. Continue west on 36 through Lyons and then into Estes Park (less than an hour drive if you are ok in the mountains). If you want more walking/shopping/food then Estes is a great place with the small mountain town feel. If you want some real views of mountains then just grab some food and head into Rocky Mountain National Park. Follow the signs to Trail Ridge Road, the highest paved road in North America with some of the best mountain and tundra views anywhere. There are elk, bighorn sheep and other wildlife all around. When you head back to Estes take highway 7 back to Lyons. This is called the scenic highway and following it in the late afternoon and reaching Lyons as the sun sets will give a fantastic ride home. Spend an afternoon downtown, visit 16th street and then head to the LoDo area for pre Rockies baseball fun in any of the bars near the stadium (plan this around a night game) and then go to the game. If you are a family guy especially, I'm not but still enjoy these, the natural history museum and the zoo are next door to each other. Just picking a few things you really want to see in each of them and doing both as a full day excursion is a great time. If you want to try some hiking then head to Boulder in the early morning. There are more hikes into the hills from the outskirts of that town than any other place I've been. A good one that can be quick or drawn out and enjoyed is the Royal Arch hike which takes you up along one of the famous flat-irons to a natural arch with a cityscape view. about 8 years ago

    Staying in Boulder, Colorado.. What to do!!

    Day trips to nearby towns are a good time too. Head to Nederland or Estes park. Rock mountain national park is great as well. There is a tiny little mountain town called Pine Cliff too; there is absolutely nothing there, but the drive to it from Nederland is a nice ride through the evergreen forest that I take when I need to get away from the city. Boulder is a strange *cough::hippy:cough* college town, but a lot of fun. You will need to enjoy the outdoors to really enjoy the culture of Boulder or you will find yourself driving into the Northglenn or Denver area every day :) about 8 years ago
