I will be visiting Denver October 5(arriving at night) - 9th(leaving mid morning.) So, 3 full days. It will be my husband, daughter (5) and myself. We are staying with a friend that lives downtown Denver. We will have access to a car. My friend just recently moved there so is not super familiar with things to do. I was thinking:
1 day touring around Denver( any place you would recommend?).
1 day doing Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Broadmoor Seven Falls-- Probably not enough time for all 3-- Will October weather be ok for these activities? We don't mind being outside if its a little cold but I don't want my friend to have to drive in the mountains if its snowy.
1 day in boulder or fort Collins- Or do you have any other suggestions?
I considered RMNP but I think it might be a little far for a day trip. Thoughts on this?
Interests- Beer for my husband. He wants to do the coors tour but I feel like it might be a little commercialized. We typically like smaller breweries like Allagash in Maine. Outdoors, hiking, eating, animals.
Thanks in advance.
