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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Wild Basin Area and Historic Georgetown. Visiting Hallett Peak and River Rafting & Tubing will get you outdoors. Explore Estes Park's surroundings by going to Rocky Mountain National Park (Bear Lake, Trail Ridge Road, & more), Summit Lake Park (in Idaho Springs) and Georgetown (Guanella Pass & Hotel de Paris Museum). On the 30th (Mon), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Winter Park Resort. There's still lots to do: take a memorable drive along Peak to Peak Scenic Byway, get a taste of the local shopping with Pearl Street Mall, explore the activities along Bierstadt Lake, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, read our Estes Park trip planner .

In July, daytime highs in Estes Park are 91°F, while nighttime lows are 59°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
