Estes Park is a popular springboard to all the attractions of the Rocky Mountain National Park, and although there is a definite emphasis on outdoor adventure activities, an impressive 26 museums and galleries as well as three relaxing spas cater to the more sedentary visitor.
You can get maps and info at the Estes Park Visitors Center and catch a free shuttle bus to most main attractions. Intrepid adventurers will find an almost endless list of outdoor activities to try, including mountaineering on Longs Peak, thrilling white water rafting, hiking, biking, backpacking, skiing and snowshoeing. Less daring visitors can enjoy the River Walk, take a scenic drive, play a round of golf, or do some wildlife watching.
