Suggestion for Day trip, from Denver

Going to be in Denver, for Thanksgiving. Need to get out of the City, for a Day. (Probably on Friday.)

So need an idea, for a non skiing day trip.

Just in case, if there is an early snow, nearest mountain with snow.

I haven't had a chance to go myself but I've heard Golden, Colorado is the place to go if you have extra time in Denver. They have the Carroll Shelby museum, Coors brewery, and Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Sounds like a fun day to me...

All depends on what you would like to do and if you have transportation.

You could head to Ft Collins and hit up some of the breweries there.

Estes Park would be decorated for the holidays by then. Might make a nice day trip if you want. Either Boulder or Fort Collins are loaded with breweries.

Little early for skiing, but you could cruise some man-made stuff that time of year.

Again, what are you looking for????

Eldorado canyon is great if you want to hike or rock climb. It is just past Bolder. Takes about an hour to get there from downtown Denver. The hardest thing is to actually get out of Denver.

FT. Collins = Beer-Mecca Went to FC, the year the roads where washed out, to Estes Park.
Only made four breweries, so I have 30 something left to visit.

Use to ride bicycles up to Estes Park from FC, back in the 80s.

Good info so far. Kinda at the mercy of the wife, and grown up kid.

The Shelby museum is in gunbarrel just east of Boulder. It's only open on Saturdays iirc. Look up Shelby American collection if interested.
Depending on weather you could do pikes peak/manitou springs. The cog rail way runs year round just not as high in the winter.
Closest skiing? Eldora or winter park. Best chance for early season a-basin.

Years ago, I was there over Thanksgiving and did a day trip up to Winter Park. I can't recall if it was man-made snow or natural, but obviously early season conditions. Could be some good hiking in Boulder up at the Flat Irons and then breweries after if the weather is sunny!

If I were you, I'd go hiking in Boulder (if weather is nice) or visit BookCliff Vineyards Tasting Room or Boulder Beer Company - Brewery & Pub...depends what are your preferences....actually there are a lot to see there
