Bring the kids along to Garden of the Gods and River Rafting & Tubing. Venture out of the city with trips to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (in Colorado Springs), Manitou Springs (Miramont Castle Museum & Cave of the Winds Mountain Park) and Idaho Springs (Historical Society of Idaho Springs & Argo Mill and Tunnel). Next up on the itinerary: cruise along Trail Ridge Road, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, view the masterpieces at Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, and admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.
