TripstoDiscover.com recently published a list of the “17 Most Romantic Winter Getaways in the U.S.” Estes Park was featured first on the list.

The website writes, “Estes Park sits at the eastern edge of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, a charming town filled with romantic hotels and elegant mountain-style cabins with upscale amenities like claw-footed tubs or in-room Jacuzzis, cozy fireplaces and even hot tubs overlooking a tranquil river or the park. Here you’ll find practically endless stretches of pristine nature and incredible opportunities for wildlife viewing – elk even roam the streets of the town while bighorn sheep can be spotted on hillsides. Outdoor enthusiasts can go snowshoeing, sleigh riding or ice skating.”

Take a horse-drawn sleigh ride, getting cozy together and staying warm with wool blankets while gliding through the fresh powder on an especially memorable journey. Many sleigh ride tours include hot cocoa and some even feature a candlelit dinner. Head to Strawberry Park Hot Springs where you can soak in the soothing hot springs surrounded by the frozen landscape. You can even choose to stay in the establishment’s most unique accommodations, a renovated train caboose that features a gas fireplace.”
