My fiance and I are hoping to plan a honeymoon in Colorado after our wedding in late July 2015. We’re coming from Seattle so the airfare is very inexpensive and we’d get more out of our honeymoon than if we went to Europe or Bahamas or something (with a budget of around $2500).
My question is–What are some things we should absolutely do when visiting Colorado? I know I definitely want to go river rafting and do some microbrewery tours, but other than that, I have no clue! Again, we’ll be going in late July so skiing is obviously out, but we still want some fun, outdoorsy activities to do!
I was thinking about doing two nights in Denver and then staying a few nights somewhere else in the state. Any recommendations?

May I point you in the direction of Northern CO? For the microbreweries, Fort Collins has a wonderful scene for beer with New Belgium Brewing and Odell Brewing Company, plus old town Fort Collins always has really cool shops and restaurants to try. Estes Park is 45 min from Fort Collins with Rocky Mountain National Park, get a park pass and hike, horseback ride, bike, raft, and camp the Rocky Mountains! The great news about Colorado is that if you plan accordingly, your trip can be relatively inexpensive…July is a great time for concerts at Red Rocks in Denver too, so keep your eyes peeled!

I used to live in Colorado Springs. There are some things around there such as pikes peak, hiking and things like that. Manitou springs nearby is a cute little area with b&b’s. Also if your funds allow…the broadmoor is there which is one of the nicest gracious historic hotels.
