||A Day Trip to Estes Park, Colorado
||Stanley Hotel, 517 Big Thompson Avenue, Estes Park, CO
||Estes Park is the quaint town at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. It is packed full of fun touristy things to do in town, but my favorite is to take a scenic drive in the surrounding area. Hop on HWY 34 from Loveland - take the Glen Haven turn off - get a fantastic view of Estes valley - bypass downtown and head straight up through the National Park to take in the natural beauty of the mountains - on the way back home stop in downtown to by a malt or coffee. Remember to bring your camera and binoculars!
