Estes Park is a picturesque mountain village set in the stunningly magnificent backdrop of the Colorado Rockies. The community has been welcoming guests and visitors since the 1860’s, making it one of the most historic and beloved vacation destinations in Colorado. Offering genuine small town hospitality, you’ll feel welcomed and at home from the moment you arrive. Come as you are—you’ll find no pretensions here.

In addition to touring Rocky Mountain National Park, there are so many activities to enjoy in Estes Park, including horseback riding, mountain biking, boating, fishing, golfing, and whitewater rafting. Celebrate at festivals and concerts all year round. Winter visitors can enjoy snowshoeing, sledding, and cross country skiing.

The sightseeing around Estes is amazing and not to be missed! Built during the boom of automobile tourism in the western United States, our valley was oriented to be enjoyed not only by foot and horseback, but also by car, so all can enjoy the sights!

Estes Park is the perfect choice for making unforgettable memories of time well spent together enjoying magnificent views, shared adventures, and great western hospitality during all seasons of the year! More than 200 unique retail stores and galleries can be explored, and over 130 restaurants offer diverse and wonderful fare to satisfy any appetite. Nearly all are proudly family-owned and operated, some for generations. For over 150 years, this small mountain community has been providing “hospitality and provisions” to park adventurers. With scenic river walks and wide friendly sidewalks, Estes Park invites our guests to stroll and linger, and to return.
