I've read some of the posts about family travel and found them very informative... almost too! Now I'm really not sure what the best itinerary is for us. We have two very active 9 year olds and two semi-wimpy parents who like their creature comforts. We're less interested in Denver and more interested in the smaller cities and mountains, combining outdoorsy fun (hiking, fishing, riding, etc.) with some in-town fun (e.g., biking, museums).
After reading through forums and looking up other stuff online, we're currently thinking maybe Colorado Springs/Boulder/Ft Collins (the latter because we heard it's a great place to live, and thought we might check it out while we are there... hey, you never know!). Am I barking up the wrong tree?
We will have probably around 10 days to spend, though it may be as few as 7 or as many as 12. It would be fun to have a mix of accommodations (e.g., few days in a nice cabin; few days in a resort, etc.).
