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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Estes Park: Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park), Rocky Mountain National Park (Bear Lake & Trail Ridge Road) and Boulder (Dairy Arts Center, Pearl Street Mall, & more). There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Peak to Peak Scenic Byway, see the interesting displays at Colorado Model Railroad Museum, stroll through Emerald Lake Trail, and take in the exciting artwork at Images of Rocky Mountain National Park.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, use the Estes Park road trip tool .

Expect a daytime high around 45°F in December, and nighttime lows around 16°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
