1 year anniversary in Colorado in July

Jump to last reply

My wife and plan to take a trip to the mountains this July for our first anniversary. I have been to Steamboat and Copper Mountain in the winter, as well as Breckenridge and Big Sky in the summer. We really loved Steamboat and Breck. Any suggestions on a good town to visit this summer? Below is a list of priorities.

1. Cool temps. We like highs in low to mid 70s. We live in Houston so nothing 80+. That is why I have somewhat ruled out Steamboat. It tends to get toasty in July due to lower elevation.
2. Scenic views, hiking, wild flowers, GREEN (we love lots of green, not crazy about the more arid parts of the Rockies).
3. Good food
4. Access to flights from Houston
5. My wife isn't crazy about horseback riding but I am. I would love to do a cattle drive or another advanced trail ride. Though I hate trail rides that are at a slow pace, single file.
6. Historic sites, landmarks, other activities we are unaware of are welcomed

Thanks for the input!
