Colorado is famous for its Rocky Mountains and breathtaking views, but you’d be surprised at how many other day trips you can take using a bus rental in and around Denver. Here are some great ideas you may consider the next time you decide to visit the Mile High City.

Garden of the Gods: Garden of the Gods Park is a registered National Natural Landmark. with 300' towering sandstone rock formations against a backdrop of snow-capped Pikes Peak and brilliant blue skies, and a world class Visitor & Nature Center, is the most visited attraction in the Colorado Springs area.


Manitou Springs: This majestic town sits between Garden of the Gods and America's most famous mountain, Pikes Peak. Manitou Springs is a vibrant artisan community, home to world class art, music, theater and sidewalk sculpture displays. Lined with unique art galleries, one of a kind gift shops and trading posts with handcrafted Native American treasures, you’ll delight in Manitou Springs’ Historic District.

Glen Eyrie Castle: This English style castle was built by the founder of Colorado Springs in the scenic Queens Canyon, where you will start your journey in the Carriage House and then embark on a guided tour of the 67-room, 24-fireplace castle (elevator and restroom equipped), concluding with views of the stunning scenery. Before getting back onto your bus, you will have time to browse the cafe, bookstore, and coffee shop.

Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre: A picture perfect setting with flawless all-natural acoustics 70 million years in the making, Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre is a true Colorado original. In addition to its blockbuster summer concert series (everyone from the Beatles to U2 have played here), Red Rocks is open year-round, featuring the Red Rocks Performers Hall of Fame and the Trading Post Loop Hiking Trail, a 1.4-mile adventure through spectacular rock formations, valleys and a natural meadow. 

Rocky Mountain National Park: Just 1.5 hours northwest of Denver, is Colorado’s most popular attraction. A great way to cross the park is along Trail Ridge Road, forming the highest continuous highway in North America and reaching heights of 12,183 feet. Activities include hiking, biking, camping, horseback riding, climbing, fishing and viewing wildlife. There are four visitor centers; two of the visitor centers and Trail Ridge Road are generally open from late May to mid-October and are closed because of snow the rest of the year. Estes Park on the east and Grand Lake on the west are two resort villages filled with shopping, dining and accommodations. This destination is tailored made for your friends and family driving a bus.
