Visiting Trail Ridge Road and Mount Evans will get you outdoors. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Union Station. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing), Golden (Golden History Museum & Park, Golden History Museum, & more) and Estes Park (Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, Photography Tours, & more). Next up on the itinerary: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, explore the striking landscape at Flatirons, stroll the grounds of Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum, and stroll through Emerald Lake Trail.

Albuquerque remains one of the state's secret jewels, as its tourist attractions are often overshadowed by the more popular holiday destination of Santa Fe.
Visiting Bandelier National Monument and Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Albuquerque Old Town and Canyon Road. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Albuquerque: Santa Fe (Cathedral Park, The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, & more). The adventure continues: take in the dramatic natural features at Petroglyph National Monument, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Felipe de Neri Church, learn more about the world around you at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and engage your brain at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque.
