Hey my wife and I are moving to Ft Collins in a few weeks and our 1st anniversary is coming up on Labor Day weekend. We don't know much about CO but we were looking for some ideas for a weekend getaway. Somewhere relaxing, good food, pool, scenery, wine and beer. I was thinking of one of the resorts, Aspen/Vail. Just wondering if anyone has any other ideas.

Thanks, Mike

The hot springs at Glenwood Springs. Or one of any other hot springs around the state. Can't go wrong.

I am not sure how much you want to spend but the Broadmore in Colorado Springs is a excellent place for a anniversary weekend. I would recommend the Penrose Room for you anniversary dinner as its the best restaurant in the state of Colorado, in my opinion.

Aspen is another good place. Hotel Aspen is a nice place to stay and its walking distance to the downtown area. They have a number of nice restaurants including Pinions, and the restaurant in the nice hotel there called the Little Nell. They have a music festival that is fun and world class.

THanks for the tips! Ouray is a bit too far but it looks pretty cool. I think something at Vail, Aspen, Steamboat will probaly work out. Rates are pretty good in Sept as well.

Personally I would save / delay Steamboat (or Aspen/Crested Butte) till the aspen colors (last week in Sept).

For early Sept I would do Estes Park and RMNP, or Glenwood Springs / Vail.

I had a GREAT anniversary in Winter Park. Pretty empty in Sept, and pretty close to Front Range. We had an entire OLD lodge all to ourselves. (weeknights)

Aspen is awesome in September. Drive over Independence Pass when the leaves are changing. I usually stay at the Sky Hotel. They have great deals that time of year. If it's not your style (sort of a hipster party place) I'd pick the Jerome (very old school classic Aspen) or the Aspen Meadows (beautiful park-like setting a few blocks from downtown).

Go to Glenwood Springs! My coworker proposed up there and he said it's awesome. He told me to tell you guys to eat at the Italian Underground, check out the hot springs, vapor caves, and new amusement park thats up on the mountain. Great getaway for you and there is something for everyone!
