There was some kind of festivities going on when we arrived. Live music and lots for kids to do. It took awhile to get there from Golden, CO but the ride was scenic and the town was quaint.

The smells, the festivals and the great sales during this time of year make it a must do on your list. Bring layers because you can start the day in a snow hat and end it in a t-shirt.

Like the atmosphere. Small town appeal. Easy access with ample parking, lots of shopping & local restaurants.

There were lots of pokestops and active gyms/players so those that were bored with shopping and eating could enjoy the weather, sit on a bench, and play Pokémon Go or chill out. There were lots of souvenir shops, candy, ice cream, coffee shops, and restaurants....More

After and day of hiking there is nothing better than walking the sidewalks and browsing all of the stores in downtown Estes Park. Memories are made that last a lifetime. The smell of mountain air, popcorn, and taffy are unforgettable.

Shops are cute Fun shopping friendly people Wish the traffic wasn’t so heavy and hard to get through but, that’s just how busy it is

There are a couple. Estes Park Brewery and Rock Cut Brewery are about a block off of the main strip.
