Overview

Desperate for a vacation but short on time? Pack an overnight, grab a copy of this book, and head for one of its fabulous destinations. Covering little-known treasures and "must-see" attractions alike, this is the perfect guide to take on the road whenever you get the urge to get out and go. This book's 25 great weekend minivacations include: exploring Tropical Discovery at the Denver Zoo, a state-of-the-art rainforest housed in two glass pyramids where winding pathways along tropical waterfalls will make you feel as though you are exploring an equatorial jungle; relaxing in the steamy, soothing waters of natural outdoor hot springs as you gaze out onto the mountainous back drop of spectacular Glenwood Canyon; and meandering along flagstone walks by gingerbread houses and lovingly preserved churches that create an elegant bygone era in Georgetown, Colorado, one of Colorado's most beloved Victorian towns. This handy and informative volume contains all the information you need right at your fingertips, including travel directions, destination highlights, activities for morning and afternoon, special events and festivals, shopping, local sources of information, detailed maps and choice restaurants, picnic sites, and lodgings.
