I am traveling to Denver for a quick trip and I was curious to know which location is better for a selection of
plastic models and accessories?

Which location is a better? The Aurora Store - Colpar East or the Lakewood Store - Colpar West?

I wanted to save time and hit the best one? Can anyone give a recommendation? Thank you very much!!

Definitely Aurora!

Their Aurora store is very plastic model focused, while the Lakewood store is more gaming. I think you'll find the selection at Aurora quite good!

Colpar East is the place to go for plastic models!

Also check out Aberdeen Books http://www.aberdeenbookstore.com for military history books and modeling reference material. Be sure to call before going, his hours are kinda weird.

Definitely agree re Colpar East. Thanks for mentioning Aberdeen Bookstore!

I'm glad you mentioned the Aberdeen Bookstore on S. Federal Boulevard. You're right, the hours are a bit unusual during the week(10 or 11 am to 3pm Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Closed Wednesday and Thursday), but it's reliably open from 11am to 4pm on Saturdays, whcih is always a good time to swing by for a visit.

Thanks for the mention, Corey!

Two must see museums if you are able -

Wings over the Rockies is great, had a B-18 there when I went last year.
The Forney Museum of Transportation is a must if you like automotive.
