Colorado get away

Long story short......

Wife & I's anniversary is coming up next month. Looking to take her away for a couple days to Colorado. I've been looking at Vail, or Estes Park, etc. Just not sure what's a good semi romantic place to go. Looking for some quiet together time, but a place with some decent food & nightlife.

Hoping some of you can give me some suggestions.

Got a long rock wall with a big oak at the north end. Like something out of a Robert Frost poem. It's where I asked my wife to marry me. We'd gone for a picnic. We made love under that tree. I asked and she said yes. Promise me, find that spot. In the base of that wall you'll find a rock that has no earthly business in a hayfield. A piece of black volcanic glass. You'll find something buried under it I want you to have.

I would also agree with the Glenwood Springs idea. The hot springs are great this time of year. Wives love it. Not a whole lot else to do there though. But, would be nice for a quiet, relaxing getaway for a couple of days.

there are other places I'd suggest that are wonderful to explore and view this time of year. Idaho Falls, ID is about an hour from Jackson, WY and the Grand Tetons. West Yellowstone is about 2 hours north as well, there are taverns along the way with fly fishing shops and all kinds of cool explorations. Craters of the Moon is about 2 hours west as well. The Snake River runs str8 through town and you can go down to the falls where, at night while the lights are on, you can view some of the largest brown trout imaginable.

It's a cheap flight/stay and really central to many wonderful sights.

You can take an Amtrak train from Denver to Glenwood that's pretty cool. It makes for a nice relaxing trip with good views, and the train drops you off right in the heart of Glenwood. In Denver, there's a short cab ride to get to hotels and stuff, but it's maybe ten or fifteen bucks.

Estes Park is going to be boring this time of year. Unless you want to go for a snowshoe hike in Rocky Mountain National Park, there's just not going to be much to do up there. You can burn an afternoon shopping, and there are enough restaurants that you're not going to have to go shoot an elk or anything, but I wouldn't go there.

Breck is a neat little town, and it's still on my suggestions list. However, it's one of those things where you're just not squarely in its target market this time of year. Like Vail, Breck is going to be dominated by ski traffic. There's no problem with that, but unless you're going to ski, you can probably do better.

If I were you, I'd seriously look into the Colorado Springs AREA (note that I didn't necessarily say Colorado Springs itself). Look into the cog railroad train to the top of Pike's Peak. Zero effort, and you get to be at the top of a 14er. You can also visit Cave of the Winds if you're into that kind of thing. If you're up for a little drive, it's about 1.5 hours from there to the Royal Gorge.

Think about staying in Manitou Springs rather than in Colorado Springs itself. It's only about 15 minutes from town, and it's much quieter and relaxing. There are a handful of restaurants there, or you can always drive into town for a much larger selection.

(Glenwood Springs is an OK place as well. They've got a big hot springs pool that is fun. I just can't see burning more than a day in the town itself.)
**** yeah! Then he could come see my big ugly ass on the way by.

Really though, there is a lot of neat shit around there. On top of what the others have said, the Royal Gorge is a nice area, on the way to the gorge there is a Skyline drive that will scare the piss out of you way more than the pikes peak drive.

Pretty neat place.

(And you could stop by and see the Buehler.

Good call on the Springs, also would be very easy to get to VS any of the Mountain options.

Disagree entirely on Glenwood (as do 3 other recommendations following your post), I have been to many places in my 16 years here and the Royal Fork Valley is like nothing else in CO, stunningly beautiful. I have been there several times with ladies and it is perfect for the type of fugg/eat/sleep vacation the OP seems to be looking for. Hanging Lake and Rifle falls are amazing, not sure how doable they would be in the winter though.

One must do if you do go to Glenwood is to have the beer-cheese soup at the Glenwood Canyon Brewing Co right downtown next to the river, I'm not typically one to go on and on about restaurants or their dishes, but this is a can't miss.

I like to get up at 4am and clean all the pots/pans in the homes that I stay in. No sense in wasting 2-3 hours of a day sleeping when there is stuff to be done. I also like to give any cats in the house plastic bags. Can I get a discounted rate since I'm coming from out of state?
