Spend time in the town of Estes Park.
Is nature in the winter not your thing? No problem! Spoil your partner (and yourself) with a day spent out on the town. There’s plenty to do in Estes Park, so you’ll have no trouble planning something that’s perfect for yours and your partner’s interests.
Shop for some unique finds in the boutique shops downtown, and don’t forget to stop at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for a Valentine’s Day treat. Spice things up with a trip to a winery or make it a spa day with a couple’s massage for some much-needed pampering!
Plan a special dinner.
No Valentine’s Day is complete without an amazing dinner spot! Choose from one of Estes Park’s many delectable restaurants. You’ll find everything from elegant fine dining to charming, comfort food bistros.
