With great anticipation, my family and I take to the road this summer in search of new adventures, to expand our knowledge of Am History and to heighten our sense of Americana. The family Gaidus website has been a great resource for us, I recommend it highly. Our trip is pretty well planned but two questions remain. First, any thoughts on the best/ enjoyable way for a family of six (mom, dad, children 13, 13, 10 and 8) to spend two nights between Denver and Moab? we are an active troup, with fishing, swimming, hiking, sight seeing, etc a big part of our itinerary. We have looked at RMNP, Dillon, Breckenridge, Vail, Montrose, etc but wanted to hear from experienced folks who can recommend some family fun. We plan no camping on this leg of our trip!
My second question regards our itinerary after Zion. We would like to travel up to Great Basin NP then onto to Stanley or Sun Valley Idaho. Any recommendations on lodging in the Great Basin/ Ely area and the Stanley or Sun Valley Idaho area.
Replies much appreciated.
