We are a family of five, 2 adults and 3 kids ages 11, 5 and 2. We are planning a roadtrip going from Austin to Denver and back in about 7 days if this is doable, looking for advise on that.
We are planning on leaving Austin on Saturday March 4 around 8-9am looking to drive to Amarillo that day to see family. Sunday we are thinking of drive to Pueblo or Colorado springs. Here we want to do the COG rail and see the Garden of the Gods. Also thinking about the Cheyenne mountain zoo. Are their any other great things to see or do in this area please let me know.
So we figure we will spend Monday and part of Tuesday here and then drive up to Denver that night. So Wed we are thinking about seeing the Denver Aquarium and Museum of Nature & Science. Any other things to do or see in this area please let me know.
Thursday we are thinking about going to the rocky mountain national park or instead of that heading to Mesa Verde National Park. Any advise or which is worth it more and which is more doable would be greatly appreciated as Mesa Verde seems pretty far compared to Rocky Mountain.
Friday we plan on headed back as we would like to be home by Sunday mid day at the latest. Any suggestions on things to do or see or restaurants in these areas would be great. Does this trip seem doable with all the things we hope to see. Any and all advice would be appreciated.
