Christmas Lights line Elkhorn Avenue in Downtown Estes Park

Christmas in Estes Park

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. With the elk jingle belling… or maybe just hanging out around town, strolling the golf course. But just because the elk aren’t jingle-belling, and don’t have red, light-up noses, doesn’t mean Estes isn’t the perfect Christmas destination and a great way to get into the Rocky Mountains in winter.

THE BEST PLACE TO START WITH CHRISTMAS IN ESTES IS CHECKING OFF THE NAMES ON YOUR LIST.

 

Winter Couple Shopping

Even if that means getting them their gifts a bit late, they’ll understand. Especially if you get them something one-of-a-kind, made in Estes. Plus, if you’re a bit selfish, you can enjoy the Hallmark feel of downtown, with the twinkling lights and maybe even a treat for yourself. Ice cream, taffy or a coffee are all great ways to fuel your spree

If Christmas isn’t a good enough excuse to make it to Estes, or you’ve got prior obligations, check out more reasons to visit Estes in the winter, no matter the holiday, or plain old day you decide to make the trip!
