We are planning an 11 day trip to Colorado in mid-July.
We fly in/out of Denver and will be staying in Avon for a week (timeshare) and will have three days at another location (TBD). We will be with our children (ages 7 and 9) and would like to visit the following and any other recommendations you have:
Rocky Mtn Natl Park
Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP
Great Sand Dunes NP
Attend a concert at a Music Festival
Avon will be our base for the first seven days (bc of timeshare) and then we plan to head towards Denver to explore RMNP. We would love feedback on possible itineraries for the places mentioned above. We would like to break up the week with staying local and enjoying the Avon area, and with drives to the southern NPs. Kid friendly restaurant recommendations are also welcomed (our girls are very well behaved and open to trying new and different cuisines). We would also like a recommendation for a place to stay near RMNP and reserve before things get booked up.
Many thanks in advance for your help, and a happy, healthy and safe New Year to all!
