Family is heading to the pinball nationals in Lyons CO on May 18. We want to expand our trip to involve some family funtime in the area in the week before the tournament. Where should we stay? What should we not miss? What should we avoid at all costs? More inside.

We know about Elitch (the amusement park). Will we need more than one day for that park? I like to be outdoors, but have physical limitations that preclude anything too sporty: I can manage a gentle hike, and that's about it. I like art, animals, books, museums, harp music, video games. My dh and teen son like pinball (that end of the trip is easy to fulfill); we all like metal music, model railroading, and a little antiquing. We know nothing about the area. Critical thing is that we be well rested and in Lyons on the 18th, so we don't want to travel too far afield. We don't travel often, so I'd like to make the most of our vacation. What are your best non-flipper-related suggestions?
