My sister-in-law and I went whitewater rafting through Royal Gorge. Lots of fun--and another reason to make the trip in late spring or early summer.

Fremont Pass
then i-70 to denver
There will be a lot of activity in that corridor in March. So make sure you aren't going back to Denver on a weekend. They also have strict rules on i70 in that corridor which requires snow tires or 4 wheel drive. That rule is probably one of the best rules ever enacted. You could always stay in Frisco overnight or spend some time there, its a really cool mountain town with walkability and its not ski-focused. Once you pass silverthorne its just a rat race to get back to Denver, nothing all that great as far as cities from the tunnel to Denver. Idaho Springs & Georgetown are pretty blah.

One unique detour you may like instead of going straight to denver is take evergreen parkway to evergreen. Get out and stretch your legs in Evergreen there are lots of walking paths, then going to Morrison which sits near the red rocks, tons of parks and walking paths on that route. that way you'll avoid i70 going down the hill with all the scary signs everywhere saying "it gets worse" and now everyone is looking in their rear view mirror after a deadly semi wreck a couple of years ago... Enjoy!

Thanks for all the suggestions, but likely I will drive up I-25. I have a feeling those scenic roads will be all snow and ice in March. Keep in mind, I have no idea how to drive in snow. If I-70 requires 4 wheel drive, it won't be possible because I'm renting a small sedan.

Are you staying for a week or just the weekend? I ask because that's a lot of driving for a weekend trip. El Paso to Denver is 10-11 hours on a good day.

I'm planning on spending the night in Albuquerque each way. I'd say I'll be in Denver for 2 full days.

I'm now flying to Denver in March. I sure hope there won't be any severe delays due to snow. I know Denver Airport has the most delays as far as I know.

So, despite all the advice given you are still planning on coming in March? I'm getting confused about how long you plan to stay in Colorado and what you plan to do. If your trip involves a lot of driving, March is a terrible time for you to pick. Can be the snowiest month in Colorado.

He changed his itinerary from driving between El Paso and Denver to flying straight into Denver. If OP's scouting for a relo it'll allow for more time to see what the city's all about, and possibly experience a nice, wet, late winter/early spring snowstorm.
