Settle into this rustic mountain destination, but don’t expect to sit still for very long. Known as Colorado’s Original Playground, Estes Park is a perfect base camp for spending holidays in Rocky Mountain National Park. Hike or cycle a mountain trail, or go by snowshoe in winter. Enjoy an authentic chuck wagon show, stay overnight at a dude ranch, or spend some time strolling downtown’s streets, which are loaded with Western-inspired artwork and architecture. You won’t be stuck for things to do at Estes Park!
Though you may be tempted to spend all of your time in the national park, the town itself teems with gorgeous natural environments. Head to Lake Estes, a reservoir off the Big Thompson River, and rent a kayak or canoe. Hang out on the wading beach, or look for elk, deer and bald eagles around the lake (there’s a bird sanctuary nearby). Two scenic drives showcase the area’s abundant peaks and forests. On the Peak to Peak Scenic Byway, you’ll pass Lily Mountain and Twin Sisters as well as old gold mines and ghost towns. Inside the national park, Old Fall River Road lives up to its name; built in 1920, it was the park’s first road open to cars. A slow route up through the high country, this uphill-only road is a dizzying squeeze through forests, offering views of the Rocky Mountain environment you wouldn’t get otherwise. Just outside the park lies the YMCA of the Rockies, a recreation area designed to fully immerse you in mountain culture. Settle into a cabin, and then plan a day of Rocky Mountain-style fun, whether you’re into whitewater rafting and archery or yoga and campfires.
