  1. Default From Denver to ?????

    We just got word that our expected trip to Steamboat for our son's baseball tournament in July was cancelled, leaving us scrambling to put together a trip before school starts. We don't want to drive more than 8-10 hrs away, but would like to get out of the state. Anybody have any ideas??? So far, we're considering rapid city or possibly great wolf lodge in Kansas City, but not really set on anything. I appreciate any suggestions!

    Default Head north - so much to do.

    Hi, and Welcome to the Great American Roadtrip Forum.

    Have you thought maybe the Black Hills Area in SD. There is Mt Rushmore, Badlands NP, all the attractions in Custer SP and 20 miles north of Belle Fourche on old US85, The Geological Centre of the United States. This would be well within your preferred distance from Denver. But you do not say how long you have for the trip. To see all the attractions, as well as the touristy Wall Drug, you could spend a fair bit of time in that region.

    Another option would be to head West to Utah. You could get all the way to Zion NP, but could spend time at Bryce, Arches and so many more interesting places on the way there and back. I especially love the "Narrows" walk IN the Virgin River at Zion.
