The town lies at the eastern end of the Rocky Mountain National Park, and the park itself is the main attraction in the area. There is a huge variety of outdoor activities to enjoy, including climbing, hiking, and cycling. There are also some wonderful drives through the park, particularly along Trail Ridge Road, which runs from Estes Park to Grand Lake—look into Estes Park car rentals so you don't miss out. Estes Park itself is a delightful mountain town that is well-equipped for visitors, with lots of restaurants, art galleries, and shops.
There are lots of events on the town's calendar, so you should try to time your Estes Park vacation to ensure that you experience one of the popular festivals. Scotfest takes place in September and is a celebration of all things Scottish (and Irish), including traditional dancing and music, sports and games, and a dog show. Also in September is Autumn Gold, which involves music, dancing and beer. October sees the annual Elk Fest, based on the animal that lives in the surrounding mountains. There are arts and crafts made from elk skin and ivory, music, storytelling, and lots more elk-related activities. Estes Park hotels can fill up around the festivals and in the summer months, but that's no problem if you book in advance.
