I've just booked a flight to Colorado Springs in August. Plan is to fly to Colorado Springs, arrive at 9 AM on a Friday. Returning home on following Monday, departing at 5:30 PM. This gives me from 9 AM Friday, all day Saturday, Sunday, and a good portion of the day on Monday. Basically, I see my itinerary has having 4 days, and 3 nights. I am looking for a suggested day by day itinerary, what to see/do, what towns to overnight in.
I do know I want to take the cog railway up to Pikes Peak, and I want to do a drive through Rocky Mountain National Park. Also, interested in visiting either Aspen, or Summit County or both.
Following is a list of attractions that I've noticed:
•Rocky Mountain National Park/Estes Park
•Visit Seven falls
•Garden of the Gods
•Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine in Cripple Creek
•US Mint tour
•Coors Brewery Tour
•Molly Brown House Muesum
•Walk through Georgetown
•Georgetown Loop Railroad
•Glenwood Hot Springs
With regards to the above sights and attractions, it's only just a list of possibilities. Perhaps too many considering I have only 4 days. Also, we are open to other suggested ideas too. The only things on the list that are a "must do" is Pikes Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park. Other than that, I'd like to fill our 4 days with as much sights as possible.
Any suggestions for a day by day itinerary to see and do as much as possible?
Thank you so much.
