By plane: The closest airport is Denver International Airport. From there, you will take the interstate straight up through Boulder, and arrive shortly after.

FUN ACTIVITIES FOR YOUR ESTES PARK WEDDING:
This gorgeous mountain town may flaunt some of the best views of the Rocky Mountains and be flourishing with wildlife, but that’s not all Estes Park has to offer.
It has a charming, very walkable downtown area, with no shortage of excellent breweries and restaurants. With rivers and mountains serving as the backdrop, does it really get much more romantic than this?
- Ride the Estes Park Tramway:
This cute red tram will take you to the top of Prospect Mountain where you’ll be treated to dazzling views of the surrounding mountains and valley. The tram is only open from May-September (and only on weekends in September, weather permitting), but if your wedding falls between these dates, it’s a must do.
- Explore Downtown
Downtown is small but quaint, with a solid mixture of local art, homemade fudge, river views and no shortage of restaurants, shops, and breweries to check out. Grab a cup of coffee and get lost in this beautiful town.
- Visit a Brewery or Three (or a Winery if That’s Your Thing)
What’s a trip to Colorado if you don’t visit a micro-brewery? Favorites for your Estes Park wedding are:
- Rock Cut Brewing Company

- Pay a Visit to the Stanley Hotel
This hotel served as Stephen King’s inspiration for The Shining, so it’s worth paying a visit. Even if you’re not a fan, it’s absolutely gorgeous. King based the book off his experiences with guests while staying at the Stanley Hotel, though it’s worth noting that the movie wasn’t actually filmed here.
Take a serene walk along the lake, or paddle across it by renting a canoe, kayak or a paddleboat!
Complete with bumper boats, go-karts, and more, you’ll leave with tired and very happy kiddo’s!
