Fantastic BBQ. Be sure to go in the off time otherwise you will be waiting. Loved by locals and tourists alike. There is a second location which is not as well known at the 18 Hole Golf course (locals secret).

Parks & Nature

This is a must see but get off the beaten path. Hiking is available for all levels from the beginner to the experienced hiker. A great way to experience the park. Be sure to drink lots of water to help with altitude adjustment.

The aerial tramway takes you to the top of a mountain where you can look out into the Estes Valley below. The tramway is seasonal so be sure to check and make sure it is running during the time you are staying.

Remember the Shining? The movie was filmed here. The original hotel was built by FO Stanley and he brought people from the front range to his hotel by Steamers. In addition to the hotel, there is also a power station built to power his hotel on Fall River which is very unique. It is not longer in operation but is a museum. There is also a museum on the lower level of the hotel. Ghost tours are available for a fun evening.
