Fort Collins
As the story goes, the historic downtown inspired Walt Disney’s layout for Disneyland.  Hollywood set designer Harper Goff, who was responsible for designing several street fronts for Walt Disney’s Main Street, U.S.A., grew up in Fort Collins and used the buildings of his childhood to inspire Disneyland's designs.
 
The towns proximity to Denver (50 minutes north of Denver) and Rocky Mountain National Park make Fort Collins a great stop. It’s known for its thriving craft beer scene, progressive sustainability efforts and live music.

Our drive to Aspen this afternoon will be a memorable one. We’ll travel along highways that are lined with jagged cliffs, winding roads over high-alpine passes and switchback turns with views that will keep your camera snapping.
 
We’ll take a casual 12 block stroll through historic downtown Aspen to acquaint us with Aspen’s ins and outs and the energy that makes it a world-class resort town.

Upon arrival in Telluride we’ll explore the town on foot. Because of its significant role in the history of the American West, the core area of Telluride was designated a National Historic Landmark District.We’ll finish our tour at Telluride Brewing Company where we’ll quench our thirst with the smooth-tasting flavors of beer from one of the highest microbreweries in the world.

We’ll travel along the Million Dollar Highway today between Ouray, a charming town surrounded by steep mountains, and Silverton, an old silver mining town. Much of Silverton is considered a National Historic Landmark and is the depot town of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. This 3 ft. narrow gauge heritage railroad has been hauling freight and passengers in continuous operation since 1882. We’llride the historic railroad along the Animas River, through wilderness inaccessible by any road, for a steam-powered arrival into Durango.

Upon our return to Durango we’ll visit one of the oldest craft breweries in the state. Water born high in the San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado makes these hand-crafted brews taste so good.
