Hello, I'm planning a 4 day trip to Denver in mid-April and would love recommendations for things to see and do both in the city and scenic places within a 2 hour drive. I've looked through the "Things to do" list here for Denver, but didn't see much there in terms of day trips. Can anyone tell me when Mt. Evans Scenic Byway typically opens? Also, I was in denver several years ago and went to an "old west" town nearby, but can not remember the name of the town.
Any other tips or recommendations would be appreciated.
