These are all things I've done with visitors in the last couple of years. It mostly depends on what they want to do.

Gone to Rockies games.

Drive to Boulder and walk up and down the Pearl Street Mall in the shadow of the Flatirons. Continue to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain Nation Park. Drive through RMNP on Trail Ridge Road - the highest paved road in the US. Come back over Loveland Pass (elev. 11,990') on the Continental Divide.

Other times we have gone to the US Air Force Academy in the Springs to visit the Visitor Center and the Chapel. Then over to Manitou Springs and take the Cog Railway to the top of Pikes Peak.

Others opt for the local stuff, like up to Lookout Mountain and a look at Buffalo Bill's grave. Or maybe some mountain golf to see how far they can hit a golf ball at altitude.

Some just want to shop. That's when I stay home and my wife is the tour guide.
