In the past few years, staycations have become increasingly popular. I must say that I love them. I have less to pack and plan, and I don’t waste half of my time on an airplane or traveling! I have also had the chance to see many places in Colorado that I may otherwise have not thought to see. Staycations are great in terms of affordability, and with a little planning you can have a full vacation with tons of lasting memories. One of our favorite tricks is to find a rental cabin near the city that we want to visit! Visit vrbo.com and restaurants.com to find places to stay as well as great restaurants to eat at! Here are some “must-see” places in Colorado:
National Museum of World War II Aviation
Victor’s Gold Camp and Mining Museum
Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park
Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls, & Toys

I’m looking for a cabin, and places to see. We have about 14-16 people including children. This would be for Thanksgiving weekend.

Estes Park & Rocky Mountain National Park are favorite destinations for my family. We love making a family fall retreat in that area.
You have compiled an interesting list! We have exchange students coming this summer and I’ve been thinking about day trips and even weekend trips while they are here.
