Family Weekend Getaway in Rocky Mountain National Park
Rocky Mountain National Park is the largest and grandest of Colorado's four national parks, encompassing 415 majestic square miles. At least 60 peaks soar over 12,000 feet, dominated by the sheer granite face of the 14,259-foot Longs Peak. More than 300 miles of trails traverse the park, which is home to 60 different mammals including elk, bighorn sheep, black bear, moose, and mountain lion. On the east edge of the park sits the small town of Estes Park at 7,522 feet. With kid-friendly restaurants, kitschy souvenir shops, and reasonably priced accommodations, Estes is an ideal base camp for families. The unpretentious resort town is also a visual delight in its own right, with panoramic mountain views and the occasional elk herd grazing on the golf course. For a memorable family getaway, these are our favorite spots, both in town and in the park. – by Jayme Moye
