Estes Park Attractions

Want to have a fun-filled day that takes advantage of Estes Park attractions? My husband and I have two young children and have tried many different approaches for spring and early fall. After many years of trial and error, we have come up with the perfect ticket to an enjoyable time for everyone!

Stay at a place that’s reasonably priced and has nice amenities.

We stayed at Rocky Mountain Park Inn and just loved it! The accommodations were clean and reasonably priced. The best selling

point? The indoor heated pool that stayed open until 10:00 along with a jacuzzi. Both kids and parents can enjoy their stay here!

Estes Park Attractions

Make sure everyone gets a chance to enjoy all the outdoor activities Estes Park has to offer.

As an example, my husband is a fisherman. He gets up early to enjoy morning fishing from 6- 10:30am. The kids and I can laze around and make a nice breakfast and take a nice walk.

Have lunch in town and . . . dessert!

When we stay at a place that has a refrigerator and microwave, I always made hamburgers and breakfast burritos. We finally decided that for a short stay it made more sense to just eat out. Penelope’s for and Chicago’s Best are favorites, but the Subway next to the Safeway in town has become our favorite, since the kids can be close to McDonalds!

Make sure the kids have their fun too.

Every time we visit Estes park for a short stay, we always take the kids to Fun City. It opens up at noon during most of the off season, and 10am throughout the summer season. Bumper boats, Go Karts, Bumper cars and, of course, the Giant Slide!

Make sure everyone can bring home a souvenir.

Our tradition involves a bag of rocks at Dick’s Rock shop.

Go back to the cabin for naps. Kids can play with their souvenirs.

Enjoy an evening stroll or play miniature golf.

Dinner: Order pizza, have a glass of wine, or better yet, grill up some hotdogs for dinner with smores.

Time for bed!
