Day 1

Fly nonstop to Denver where lunch is hosted before traveling to Colorado Springs for a docent guided tour of the US Olympic & Paralympic Museum. The Museum opened in 2020 and boasts 12 galleries filled with great artifacts and interactive exhibits, making it one of the best new things to do in Colorado. Your hotel is conveniently located downtown. Hilton Garden Inn - 2 nights (L)

Garden of the Gods is a beautiful area of red sandstone. Stop first at the Visitors Center for the iconic photo op of the park with Pikes Peaks in the background. Then tour the park to see fanciful formations like Steamboat Rock and Balance Rock. Next you're off to nearby Manitou Springs for lunch at a historic property followed by some free time in the quaint little town. (FB, L)

Board the Georgetown Loop Railroad's Fall Foliage Train, one of Colorado's most authentic living museums and historically immersive experiences. Travel back in time while riding the narrow gauge rails and discover the Colorado Rockies as they were in the 1880s. The route will take you through scenic mountains, stunning foliage with changing leaves, all the way to Grand Lake. Gateway Inn (FB, L) 

Day 4

Today we enter Rocky Mountain National Park. Your local guide will share hidden stories of the Native Americans and pioneer settlers scratching out a living in the short summers of the high Rockies. Travel through the Kawuneeche Valley, the headwaters of the Colorado River and enjoy the views of the majestic Never Summer Mountains. Cross the continental divide and stop at the highest National Park Alpine Visitors Center (11,879 feet above sea level) offering up hundred-mile views! We end in Estes Park. Your accommodations are at The Lodge at the Stanley Hotel located adjacent to the main building and opened in 1910. The Lodge couples a boutique and historic experience under one roof, featuring updated historic-style accommodations. Dinner will be hosted in the historic hotel. The Lodge at the Stanley Hotel - 2 nights (FB, D)

The Stanley Hotel is famous for a number of reasons: First for its historical place in history of Estes Park, and second for its connection to Stephen King and the movie "The Shining."
