How would you like an Epic Summer vacation?

Have you been able to get away this summer for a family vacation? Unfortunately we didn’t really get to go on the family vacation that we wanted to this year due to various circumstances that have happened this year. Lord knows we really need an actual vacation rather than just a trip up to Canada to my parents house, but alas another summer goes by and we’ll have to wait till next year.

One of the many great places for a family vacation that I’ve heard about is a trip to Colorado. I’ve personally never been but the pictures I’ve seen and the things I’ve heard, it makes my brain work a bit harder thinking maybe we’ll be there next summer.

Why not have a family vacation and make it an epic summer. From gondola rides at Keystone and Vail to whitewater rafting in the Rockies, Going to Beaver Creek and horseback riding or panning for gold in Breckenridge, a vacation in Colorado seems to have everything we’d never do at home, and that’s what makes a vacation great to me. Why travel to places where you can do the same old thing, make it an epic summer and have an exciting adventure.

Visiting can help you out with your Colorado summer vacation, with helpful trip itineraries for four or seven day trips, a guide to lead you along the way and visiting all the regional destinations, will give you the insider’s perspective of Colorado.

Some activities may include:

Keystone - Elevation 9,280’
Welcome reception followed by dinner. Scenic gondola ride and guided hike, mountaintop picnic. Wagon ride to cowboy dinner, campfire and star-gazing.

Breckenridge - Elevation 9,603’
Stroll Main Street. Learn about the town’s history. Take a mining tour. Go gold panning.

Rafting Trip
Combine the scenic beauty of the Colorado Rockies with an exciting day of rafting.

Beaver Creek - Elevation 8,100’
Horseback ride through Aspens for a picnic lunch in a meadow all the way. Enjoy a guided nature hike. Explore Beaver Creek Village.

Vail - Elevation 8,150’
On the way from Keystone to Vail drive Loveland Pass to the Continental Divide, light hiking. Scenic gondola ride in Vail to mountain top for a picnic. Fun afternoon at Adventure Ridge including Frisbee golf and other activities. Get a dose of history at the Colorado Ski Museum.

Rocky Mountain National Park
Hiking, site-seeing and a picnic. Tour Estes Park. Visit native buffalo in Genesee.

If this doesn’t sound exciting I don’t know what does. My kids would be sure to enjoy something like this, as would my hubby and I. Colorado is looking better and better to me, and with this helpful trip itinerary, it makes my family vacation planning that much easier!
