My husband and I will be arriving in Denver the evening of 09/21and plan to stay in Golden Friday night and make our way to Aspen Saturday, 09/22. This is our first trip to CO. Which route would you recommend? I understand we should avoid tolls because we will be in a rental and we would just like to take our time and try to enjoy and take it all in as we go. Any lunch recommendations while traveling would be appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance!
