The Big Thompson River and Fall River wind through the heart of downtown Estes Park, offering a wonderful choir of babbling brooks and beautiful sights. Wandering down the Riverwalk is a wonderful way to spend a few hours. With shops, restaurants, bars and more all along, it is the perfect way to experience the serenity of the river and all Estes Park has to offer. George Hix Riverside Plaza is the heart of the Riverwalk, and the confluence of the Big Thompson and Fall River. Statues, bridges, fountains and places to sit and enjoy downtown Estes are all located in the plaza.
