Overnight locations

Traveling through Colorado on I70, any good overnight suggestions or places of interest?

What part of the state? East? West?

Going from west to east, all the way through. Headed to Virginia, but want to see things on the way.

Overnight locations

If you make it to Gypsum you can stay at the River Dance RV resort. It's west of Glenwood Springs. If you stay a day or two there you can drive into Glenwood and enjoy the hot springs.

About half way thru Glenwood canyon (highway marvel if you've never driven it) and have a couple hours you must stop at the Hanging Lake attraction. It's a short hike to the lake but it's beautiful.

A pic I grabbed off the internet if hanging lake.

Would be a few miles out of the way, but Colorado Springs has quite a few attractions. Pikes Peak (either drive or take the "cog" railroad) the Air Force academy (FREE.... I used to work there) And others.....

The academy is particularly impressive, IMHO.

Along I70 stop going thru Glenwood Canyon. Quite a feat of engineering, that.

Boowho??

Also if you want to go into Breckenridge which is about I'd say 5-7 miles off I-70 it's a really neat ski town in the summer. Stay at the Tiger Run RV resort there. They also have an indoor swimming pool.

Before you get too far into Colorado from the west visit Colorado National Monument. It is one of the National Park Services best kept secrets. We stayed at a campground ( can't remember its name) but ot is aboutb1 mile from the enterance of the park.
