My husband and I are going to Colorado Springs and Denver mid-May for 6 days. We love to hike and enjoy the outdoors plus a little shopping and eating. We plan on Pike's Peak, but not sure where else to go and was wondering if anyone could help. We were planning for most of our time to be in the Colorado Springs area. Any suggestions for hotels near Colorado Springs and then one for a night or two in Denver? In Denver, we would like to be near airport as we will be returning a rental car. Thanks!
