Thinking of bringing the family to CO for a summer vacation. Kids are 5th and 9th grade. We are from the east and wife and kids have never been west. My idea is to fly into Denver and do some kind of loop to see some of the state and do some different things. A day or 2 here, a day or 2 there etc. We like to fish, hike, etc. My initial thought was to go to Steamboat and circle around down to Grand Junction and back to Denver. Any ideas of cool things to do, see or places to stay would be greatly appreciated.

I think that if you've never been to Colorado, you should definitely go to Rocky Mountain National Park. You could spend time on the east side in Estes Park and some of the hikes on that side of the park, then drive over Trail Ridge Road and spend a couple of days in the Grand Lake area. Lots of hiking and fishing there. Then complete your loop by going through Winter Park and over Berthoud Pass. You will see some fantastic scenery on this loop.
