My partner and I (in our 60's) will be coming to Denver (from the UK) for a wedding in early June next year, so thought we would make a trip of it and would welcome any advice/suggestions.
First, how long is good for a stay - 7/10/14 days? We don't want to hire a car so would appreciate suggestions for getting to Downtown from the airport (and back again). Happy to use trains or buses.
I've mentioned Downtown but where exactly would that be?
We thought it would be ideal if we could stay right in the centre of things so we can walk to restaurants, shops etc. Considering Airbnb but need to know which area to look at. Alternatively, any hotel recommendations.
We would like to see some of the wonderful countryside and wondered whether this would be a day or overnight trip and whether it is something we should arrange in advance or are lots of trips advertised over there? What are the must see places?
I'm sorry this is such a wide ranging question but we have never visited this part of the US and really want to make the most of our opportunity. Any info and suggestions would be very much appreciated.
