Colorado Dreamin’ | A Week Itinerary

Colorado Travel Itinerary

When I tell someone about our trip to Colorado, I usually wind up with a bewildered look.  It seems that we were able to pack a lot of adventure into the 8 days that we were out there.  To kick off my recommendations and snaps (that are sure to be different from the scenes I’ve shared on Instagram), I thought an overall look at our week would be a good place to start…

Day 1  

Red-eye flight from Orlando to Denver.  We chose this because it would maximize our time in Colorado without taking extra days off work.  Also, after two flights with Frontier, it’s safe to say we won’t be flying with them again.

Drive to Rifle, CO (approx. 3 hours).  Maybe not the best idea after work all day and a three hour flight that was an hour late.  But, with a two-hour time change and the excitement of being somewhere new, it worked.

Day 2

Rife Falls State Park
Rifle Gap State Park
Drive to Glenwood Springs (approx. 30 minutes)
Iron Mountain Hot Springs

Day 3

Drive to Snowmass, CO (approx. 45 minutes)
White River National Forest

Rocky Mountains, Colorado

Day 4

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park
Drive to Boulder, CO (approx. 3 hours)
