    Depending on where you go, you can go to Glenwood Springs and that's a fun town! It's has two different hot springs you can visit, plenty of food options, hanging lake hike(so beautiful and worth it) an adventure park with cave tours. There is also Estes park, lots of cute cabins, hiking, great food, and the Stanley hotel. Or Colorado Springs has 7 falls, garden of the gods. Cheyenne mountain zoo, cave of the winds. Those are some of the best attractions in Colorado.

    Colorado will be gorgeous for you to visit in September!

    My favorite hidden gem in Colorado is Ouray. It's a cute little mountain town near Telluride (which is also worth a visit!). While in the area, you could also spend an afternoon in Silverton, which is a great little historic mining town. It's a bit of a trek to get to that part of the state, about six hours or so from Denver, but it's definitely worth it! You could even make your honeymoon a road trip and stop in both Breckenridge and Glenwood Springs that were mentioned above on the way.

    If you're not looking to drive that far, I suggest going to Estes Park or Grand Lake and exploring Rocky Mountain National Park for a couple days!

    I vote brecknridge too .. first I'd stay in Frisco (cheaper ... they have shuttles behind Safeway that go to Breck, keystones, Silverthorne, copper mountain and Leadville.. tons of dispensarys( if that's your thing ) ... Leadville has tons of trails

    If dispensarys are your thing go to Leadville... they grow at 10 000 ft and at a higher altitude produces more tricomes ...

    I am going for a cabin in the woods/mountains. We're having our wedding in a barn! Country and rustic people.

    Colorado is THE BEST in the fall. It's my favorite place. Great choice! Are you thinking mountain resort? Check out some deals in Aspen and Vail. You could go skiing and hiking in the mountains, but you would still be within a few hours of Denver/Colo Springs, etc. if you wanted to do touristy things.

    If you like hiking, try to set aside some time to do Hanging Lake in Glenwood canyon, it is worth it! You'll have to go on a weekday early in the morning though, otherwise the parking lot fills up quick. Also, I'm from a town called Grand Junction, and although we don't have much to offer in terms of the town itself, we have the Monument, the Grand Mesa, and the Book cliffs which all have very nice hiking trails/camping areas. Attached is a photo of Hanging Lake

    Native Coloradoan here. Just depends on what you are looking for. Mountains, hot springs, horses, city. I would not suggest Breckenridge. It is over priced and full of gappers (tourists). Keystone resort is just as beautiful. Strawberry fields hot springs is wonderful, just get a good rental car cause the drive up there is a bit bumpy. The royal gorge is fun as well.

    Hi! I currently live in Denver and second Felicity NOT recommending Breck. I went there last summer and it was nice but for a weekend trip, not for a honeymoon. Go to one of the other mountains which are a little bigger and might have more romantic options. FH talks about Telluride all the time about how beautiful it is, but it's like a 7 hour drive from Denver I think.

    Estes park, glenwood springs has awesome hot spring and hanging lake, i highly highly recommend visiting aspen! you'll find the most amazing scenery and a beautiful little town that has cute shops and restaurants. keystone is also gorgeous with lots of trails, scenic views and nice little town. denver is pretty awesome we have lots of local breweries. my last favorite is boulder- they have awesome trails, great food, breweries, and scenic views.
