So {Name Deleted} do you have any actual recommendations for family vacation spots for my family based on the given parameters? I shared what my son likes because I am LOOKING FOR VACATION RECOMMENDATIONS. I shared I homeschooled so folks would know we have the freedom to travel outside of the typical summer vacation time frame in case someone had any constructive advice to give. Perhaps one place or another would be better seen at another time of year. I shared information I deemed necessary to obtain advice relative to our situation.

I had no idea people here would feel the need to judge a family for their educational choices for their children based on a simple request for vacation information.

MOD'S EDIT: I deleted all the garbage from him criticizing your parenting. I'm appalled by his ignorant comments to you.

I don't know distances, but will you be anywhere near Phoenix, Arizona? We were just there and visited the Phoenix Zoo... and I was HIGHLY impressed! Something to think about if you are nearby.

To the moderator - Thank you so much!

You all have helped me make a final decision - COLORADO!

I just can't pass up a chance to show the rest of my family what Colorado looks like in the fall. Looks like we will be there the last 2 weeks of September. Thanks to a wonderful suggestion I'm thinking our first stop will be Caprock Canyons SP in Texas. We have a park pass and I've been to Palo Duro but never Caprock. 2nd stop in Raton Pass, then on to the Great Sand Dunes for one night.

After that I'm stuck. Still researching. There are so many options. We could head north to Buena Vista and on to RMNP. We could head to Black Canyon of the Gunnison, down to Telluride and then to Mesa Verde. We could go down to Pagosa, Durango and Mesa Verde. We have done the Durango train before and have spent a week in Ouray. I think my kids would probably like Estes Park but I may lose my mind with the crowds.

If anyone wants to recommend campgrounds, activities and the like I am all ears. I've pressed the kids a bit more and my daughter wants to shop.....well that's a shocker. My son would like to ride ATVs or horses as well as anything native American. We are totally open to advice.

Thanks for everything so far.

After Great sand Dunes look at Twin Lakes Just a little north of Buena Vista. - It would allow the drive over Independence Pass to Aspen and Marron Bells for a day trip/hike up to the Bells, and a little shopping in Aspen for the Daughter. The drive will reveal some amazing fields/mountains covered in Aspen, the drive over will be one view the drive back another, if you are really lucky you may even catch a little Snow at the Pass. [emoticon]

From there look at Ridgway SP or the https://www.ourayrvpark.com/RV Park of Ouray - both are great and will likely require reservations in late September. (Aspen Peepers are a big deal)

Now depending on where we are in the schedule and the Pace you enjoy time will be critical as to how much more you can do.

Silverton/Telluride/Mesa Verde/Durango - will all provide days of adventures - Aspen and Telluride will have shopping as will Durango - Mesa Verde should be just a short drive to get to.

Pretty much I'd guess you need to look at the Route Home - Durango to Pagosa Springs - .........................Problem I have is I just Love those Mountains and could just sit in a chair and wait for the Snow to cover me up, it is just that Beautiful.

We will keep pushing on this as I think I've given you more options than are possible in the time allotted.

Best of Luck,
