Flying into Denver late Friday (8pm) and need recommendations of where to stay. Our goal is to stay overnight and take the Peak to Peak Byway to Estes Park. Not sure if we should drive to Estes Park directly first and stay there 1.5 days and drive down through peak to peak and stay in another town closer to airport before we depart Monday 2pm. Here a town called Golden is nice. Any advise in planning is appreciated and what lodging is recommended. This is our 18 year anniversary and the kids are staying back with grandparents!!!! want to make it memorable.
