My wife and I are headed on our honeymoon to Colorado on Monday. We will be traveling throughout the state and I was looking for advice on places to visit and resturants to stop by while out there. She is big into photography and I plan on doing a little fishing, so any thoughts on that would be appreciated as well. TIA

Good friends are hard to find. Enjoy every moment you have with them.
Crested Butte would also a nice stop. But really you can't go wrong, it's a fantastic state.
If you like beer, go to Lyons. Its on the way to Estes Park and is the home of Oscar Blues Brewery, which has a brewpub. There most famous (and best) beer is Dale Pale Ale. The founder and owner is an AU grad and perfected his recipe while at Auburn.
Thought it would be a cool place to have a bite and a great beer on your way to Rocky Mtn NP.
Other good places
Broadmoor Inn in Colorado Springs-Best hotel I have ever stay in.
Leadville-a old miming town with great character. Highest city in US. Great views of the collegiate peaks and the highest point in Colorado (Mt Elbert).
Aspen-Vail-Beautiful ,but pricey.
Black Canyon of the Gunnison is great. Gunnison River flowing through a 500 foot slot canyon.
Buena Vista- Arkansas river run through and there are fishing, kayak, canoe outfitters to guide you.
Alabama fans love Alabama football
Auburn fans love Auburn University
Get some Flat Tire Beer if you get a chance.
If you decide to go through Glenwood Springs, it would be well worth it to stop in the canyon and make the hike up to Hanging Lake. It takes a while but I would say its worth it! Also, the drive from Glenwood Springs to Leadville is good.
Congrats on the nuptials.
Thanks guys, I really appreciate the suggestions. We have been looking into them all tonight. She has never been out west so it should be a great trip. Thanks again, WDE!
Just got back from Colorado Springs Wednesday and I have to say, about the prettiest place I have visited. Scenery is amazing!
One of my favorite places. Boulder is beautiful and has a quaint little downtown area. Idaho Springs is a great little town with a very definite western feel - Has a lot of the original buildings. Also has the oldest continuously run hardware store in the nation, lots of antique hardware on display. and the original bell tower that rang to warn residents of fires. I'd highly recommend getting a couple of books on Colorado at the bookstore. You'll discover a lot of neat and interesting facts about some of the smaller towns. Pick out some things you'd really like to see and plan your route around that but don't rush - the scenery is one of the best features of the state. Veer off the interstates and just drive the back roads. You'll come across great little towns along the way. I also say that it's where all the hippies settled after the end of the Flower Power era. Very laid back. There's a little (and I mean little) town called Gold Hill where there's an old boarding house and some little shops where people make their own jewelry, pottery, etc right in the shops. Hippies turned entrepreneurs. They're awfully proud of their crafts - not cheap. Grand Lake Lodge is a suggestion close to the entrance to the Rocky Mountain National Park - great lodge with rustic cabins that have fantastic views. If you're going to Estes Park (which I recommend) stay at the Stanley Hotel - beautiful hotel that's supposed to be haunted - can't get ghosts in your hotel just anywhere. Was at the continental divide on my birthday the second week of June and there was till snow on the ground. Never thought I'd have a picture standing in snow on my birthday. When I retire, I want to move to Colorado.

Alabama delenda est.
Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs is a great place for photo ops
My Dad was born and raised in Colorado, and we went out there yearly to see relatives. Still have family there but haven't been in a couple of years. I personally love every place that I have visited but have to add Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods on horseback, and the Royal Gorge.
The Collegiate Peaks area in San Isabel National Forest, especially if you love camping & hiking. Our favorite was Chalk Creek Canyon. Drive the road to the end to visit old mining ghost towns. At the time we lived out there (early 1970's) we were often almost by ourselves in that area.
One place needs to be on your list ! TELLURIDE !!! You will love it !
