The Quality Inn & Suites DIA hotel serves as a great base camp for incredible one-day Rocky Mountain excursions. The Rocky Mountains abound with national and state parks, national forests and scenic areas that take your breath away. From touring gold rush mountain towns, hitting the slopes at ski areas, shopping excursions, to exploring the amazing scenery, there is something for everyone in the Rockies!

Here are a few of the many day-trip itineraries available.

Central City and Black Hawk – One hour drive from Quality Inn & Suites DIA
Central City and Black Hawk are two historic mining towns from the 1870′s that have come alive. They are home to more than 30 casinos with over 10,000 slot machines, blackjack tables and poker games. Visit the Teller House Hotel where President Grant once stayed and during the summer enjoy a performance at the Central City Opera House. There are mine tours, mining museums and gold panning lessons for the very hopeful!

Georgetown – One hour, 15 minute drive from the hotel
Georgetown is an 1870′s Victorian village nestled in a spectacular mountain valley. The restored buildings are now home to shops and restaurants and many of the old homes have been turned into antique stores. The Georgetown Loop Railroad provides rides in narrow gauge steam locomotives that wind down a mountain ledge and cross over a 90-foot high trestle!

Mount Evans – Two hour drive from the hotel
Mount Evans offers a driving adventure on the highest paved auto road in North America, snaking its way to the 14,260-foot summit which offers views of the entire Front Range. Along the way, enjoy a wildflower hike at M. Walter Pesman Trail where you will see rare flowers and 1,500-year-old bristlecone pine trees. Volunteer guides from Denver Botanic Gardens give interpreted hikes that follow the trail throughout the summer (call 720-865-3539 for information). There is a $10 fee for a 3-day pass and the road is only open from Memorial Day through early October so be sure to check it out before you leave!

Pikes Peak Country is home to more than 40 attractions all centered around the 14,000-foot high Pikes Peak. Some popular stops include the Air Force Academy, the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, and Garden of the Gods with its gigantic 500-foot high red sandstone rock monuments.
