I agree w/ catching a game at Coors Field, even if you aren't a big baseball fan, and everything in Thom02099's list (except for maybe Casa Bonita, as the food there is just atrocious). There is also a new outlet mall in Thornton that just opened a few months ago, off I-25 and 136th, if outlet shopping is your thing.

I will also add the Celestial Seasonings tea factory in Boulder. It is really interesting, and if I recall, would be very easy to do the tour w/ someone on wheels. Also Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife habitat out near the airport is very cool, with herds of buffalo etc., and you can do the hour drive loop through it in the car.

And, well, if you all like beer, there's no shortage of great breweries to visit.

The Hammond Candy factory tour was fun. https://hammondscandies.com/products/hammonds-factory-tour

Favorite of my wife, https://www.rmqm.org/Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in nearby Golden, CO.

We stayed at/liked the Cherry Creek Campground

Thank you so much for all these suggestions. They surely would keep one busy for a long time! But I’d like to pick your brain some more if I could or anyone’s brain for suggestions as to where we could spend another week west or north of the city. I’m sure there must be an area or one or 2 National or Private Parks where we could relax for a few days before turning back around.
We have made the decision to visit the RMNP during our second week so we can avoid the insanity of the 4th of July! I hope I’m not asking too much but I thank anyone who can help me with this last request.

The 180 day booking window is now open for mid-week the week of July 7th if you want to consider booking a site inside RMNP, either at Glacier Basin or Moraine Park.

H E R E - Roosevelt National Forest USFS CG are some of the USF campgrounds in the region. Camp Dick, Peaceful Valley, Olive Ridge are all USFS CG that are located south of Estes Park along the Peak to Peak highway and are 3 of my go to locations for the season. There are 3 campgrounds in the Red Feather Lakes area, all are very popular, but if you are there during the week, it should be far less crowded. and the ones showing for Rustic are in the Poudre Canyon (CO 14) northwest of Fort Collins. The further up the canyon you go, the less crowded it will be.

And on the west side of Cameron Pass, there's T H I S - CO State Forest SP where I would suggest Ranger Lakes as a place to stay for some solitude. I use it frequently for a base to explore Jackson County/North Park area.

There are also commercial CG in the Estes Park area, but they are way over priced, IMHO.
