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.
You've now added WildSide 4x4 Tours to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 19th (Wed): relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, then see the interesting displays at Red Rose Rock Shop & Dick's Rock Museum, and then take a memorable drive along Trail Ridge Road. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 20th (Thu): take a stroll through Downtown Estes Park, view the masterpieces at Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, and then see WildSide 4x4 Tours.

Chicago to Estes Park is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of subway, bus, and flight; or drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Chicago to Estes Park due to the time zone difference.

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.
Shop till you drop at 16th Street Mall and Pearl Street Mall. Get in touch with nature at River Rafting & Tubing and Photography Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Images of Rocky Mountain National Park (in Estes Park). The adventure continues: browse the exhibits of Denver Botanic Gardens, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, and sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Denver fast, fun, and easy.

You can drive from Estes Park to Denver in 1.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of taxi and bus. In June in Denver, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 55°F at night. On the 25th (Tue), you'll travel back home.
