More than just a convenient resting place for travelers on their way to the national park encompassing the Front Range of the Rockies, Estes Park is a popular place to visit in its own right.
To find where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Estes Park road trip planning website .

Boston to Estes Park is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Boston to Estes Park due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Boston in August, plan for somewhat warmer days in Estes Park, with highs around 89°F, while nights are little chillier with lows around 56°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Thu) early enough to go by car to Denver.

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
On the 23rd (Fri), take in nature's colorful creations at Benson Park Sculpture Garden, then shop like a local with Pearl Street Mall, then identify plant and animal life at Humane Society of Boulder Valley, and finally look for gifts at Penzeys Spices. Here are some ideas for day two: wander the streets of 16th Street Mall and then admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Denver trip planner .

You can drive from Estes Park to Denver in 1.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of taxi and bus. In August in Denver, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 58°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
