All of those are great spots to visit!

I agree with January, don't take your car up Pikes Peak. I think the train is a much more awesome option anyway because you get to see some beautiful canyons and countryside and learn about the mountain on the way up. Don't forget to get a world-famous doughnut while you're at the top!

Royal Gorge is pretty neat spot. If you or your family will be around for a few days consider a whitewater rafting trip. It's a huge piece of tourism in the town (Canon City) where the gorge resides. Rafting trips are hella fun and only cost around $40-$60 a head depending on which part of the river you choose to go on. The whitewater rafting trips take about 2.5 hours. I'm from the cheese state across the river and fell in love with whitewater rafting since moving to Colorado.

Seven Falls is a quick 1/1.5 hour side stop to see a cool waterfall.

Garden of the Gods is great for a 1-2 hour hike/walk through the park. Bring your camera as there are tons of great photos to be had of the rock formations and Pikes Peak.

Another great (free) option is the United States Olympic Training Center where our summer olympic athletes live and train. Tours of the facility are completely free and you'll learn about all kinds of neat olympic history-- if you're into that sort of thing.

The Coors Brewery Tour is quite nice, but I wish they still had actual tour guides. It's now a self-guided tour using these pre-recorded MP3s. Who are we kidding. It's all about the fact you get two free beers at the end in their private bar. Best part of the tour is when they handout what they call the "perfectly served Coors" which is freshly brewed and served at a precise temperature. The "freshet and most perfect beer you'll ever taste," as they say. The line to get shuttled in for the tour can be 30-90 minutes of standing. Just be prepared to wait in line at the brewery.

Denver has tons of museums, the zoo, etc. All the attractions you'd expect in a big city. If you love music be sure to check the schedule at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. Consistently voted as one of the best music venues in the world, every seat at Red Rocks has an unobstructed view of the stage. If you sit high enough you'll also get awesome views of the Denver metro area. Because of its construction into the side of a mountain, it has tremendous acoustics that makes for a hell of a concert experience!

Can't forget about Bandimere Speedway, otherwise known as "Thunder Mountain." Great little drag strip (if you like some straight-line speed in your life). Depending when you're here, near the end of July the NHRA Nationals will be out at Bandimere which is obviously a huge draw.

Oh, twisties. Lots and lots of twisty roads.

I'm curious to see how Lapis blue looks compares to the galaxy blue. Was a little bummed they discontinued the color I wanted.
I went color shopping over the weekend since I couldn't decide between Lapis Blue and Ice Silver Metallic. The Lapis Blue is a gorgeous color. You can see it on zither Legacy and Outback. It's kind of the best of both worlds... a mix of WRB and GBP.

No 93 octane in Colorado plus your car will run fine on 91.



Also we have recreational marijuana here so I mean other than all of our awesome breweries (save the time at Coors and go to New Belgium in Ft. Collins ) you should be set...if that's your thing.

I can't wait to run my car up the Pikes Peak, it is an awesome drive. But I agree, a car still in break-in wouldn't be any fun.

Nicely done! I don't think I could have said it all better myself!

Wow that post should be a sticky of what to do while picking your car up from Heuberger! Thank you for all that information.

As to the blues. I wanted GBP also and never had the time to go look at lapis. Hope I don't regret my decision!

WRB! I spent a lot of time comparing photos but the dealer I visited didn't have any lapis in stock to check out.
