Fairplay is a great little town southwest of Denver on US Hwy 285. There is a small grocery store, hotel bar, and a library with internet access. You must be carefull with climbing in the area, because there is a lot of unmarked private property. Not a lot of climbing but it is a lot of fun if you are in the vicinity.
From Denver, take US 285 west to CO Hwy 9. Go to the north west through Alma. From Breckenridge, go south on CO Hwy 9 over Hoosier Pass.
