First time to CO, will have a good 3 weeks to spend in the area this August and trying to select a couple of areas to go camping. Traveling in dually trucks with 5th wheels, age from 20s to 70s.
One of the areas we had selected was Colorado Springs, but after doing lots of reading here and elsewhere we're not so sure anymore.
We could add Colorado Springs as a third stop, but we're wondering if it's worth it. We are from the DC area, have been to Yellowstone and the Smokey Mountains, so would like to see something different. We like great scenery, antiques, arts and crafts stores and galleries, good yet affordable local restaurants, and wineries/breweries. Aside from scenic driving and light hiking (with dogs if possible), maybe try the hot springs, ziplining, fishing, ATV.
Any thoughts/advice on where and how many days to stay? Again, total of about 3 weeks in CO.
