Estes Park

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Trail Ridge Road and Winter Park Resort. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pearl Street Mall and Benson Park Sculpture Garden. Venture out of the city with trips to Greeley (Linn Grove Cemetery & Colorado Model Railroad Museum), Fort Collins (New Belgium Brewing & River Rafting & Tubing) and Chapel on the Rock (in Allenspark). Next up on the itinerary: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, take in the awesome beauty at Hallett Peak, appreciate the extensive heritage of Wild Basin Area, and examine the collection at MacGregor Ranch Museum.

To find reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Estes Park holiday planner.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
