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.
Popular historic sites such as Abbey of St. Walburga and Wild Basin Area are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Adams Falls Trail and Vedauwoo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Estes Park: Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Alluvial Fan), Fort Collins (Odell Brewing Company & River Rafting & Tubing) and Arapahoe Basin (in Keystone). Next up on the itinerary: admire the sheer force of Alberta Falls, enjoy the sand and surf at The Beach at Grand Lake, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, and learn about winemaking at Snowy Peaks Winery.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Estes Park driving holiday planner .

Expect a daytime high around 87°F in June, and nighttime lows around 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
