Estes Park

Estes Park, Colorado | At 7,522 feet above sea level, Estes Park sits in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Majestic views span in every direction along with the majestic scenes you expect from a Colorado mountain town-gold-medal fishing rivers, iconic peaks, fertile valleys dotted with wildlife-plus one unexpected treasure, a national park. With all its adventures and amenities, including the bench-lined Riverwalk and charming sculpture garden, it’s no wonder that Estes Park repeatedly earns recognition as a top destination. It has earned awards from TripAdvisor, Colorado Parent, the Weather Channel and many Colorado newspapers. After all, it boasts a strong history and present of hosting visitors with an authentic easiness that’s congruent with a dream getaway to Rocky Mountain paradise. In the village and along its edges, merchants, restaurants, and accommodations acknowledge their Colorado surroundings by selling locally made products, serving regional fare and decorating in ranch, Western or Lodge styles. Scenic drives show off the area, with Trail Ridge Road rising through the national park to more than 12,000 feet and several others winding through the valley, past historic landmarks and parallel to the fish-filled picturesque rivers.
