Colorado Springs — 2 nights

Stunning Garden of the Gods Park scenery, blue skies and the glory of Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain have attracted visitors to Colorado Springs for more than a century.
Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Memorial Park, then tee off at Bear Dance Golf Club, and then witness a stunning natural landmark at Dakota Hot Springs.

Denver — 3 nights

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Get in touch with nature at Fishing Charters & Tours and Cherry Creek Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Distillery Tours and Healing Waters Mind and Body Float Studio. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Eldorado Canyon State Park (in Eldorado Springs) and Mount Sanitas Trail (in Boulder). There's still lots to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Prost Brewery Co & Biergarten, take an in-depth tour of Golden History Museum & Park, and wander the streets of Historic Olde Town Arvada.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver travel itinerary planner.

You can drive from Colorado Springs to Denver in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of flight and train. Expect a daytime high around 59°F in April, and nighttime lows around 34°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.

The Centennial State
Home to diverse natural ecosystems, Colorado boasts numerous ski resorts, vineyards, canyons, fossil-rich national parks, rugged natural trails, and picturesque scenic drives. Arguably the greatest of Colorado's many natural wonders is Mt. Elbert, the highest peak in the North American Rockies. The state's natural beauty inspired the opening lyrics of the song "America the Beautiful." Aside from its abundant unspoiled wilderness, Colorado also offers many urban attractions, including award-winning restaurants and nationally praised microbreweries. With an extensive system of highways and railroads, the state provides visitors on vacation with a chance to explore this largely untamed part of the country by car or train.
