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.
Family-friendly places like Horseback Riding Tours and MacGregor Ranch Museum will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Estes Park: Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road, Milner Pass, & more), Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland) and Boulder (Pearl Street Mall, Colorado Chautauqua: Park, & more). There's still lots to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, view the masterpieces at Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, sample the fine beverages at Dancing Pines Distillery, and take a memorable drive along Peak to Peak Scenic Byway.

To find other places to visit, maps, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Estes Park day trip site .

Humble to Estes Park is an approximately 6-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Humble to Estes Park due to the time zone difference.
