Elk and people coexist peacefully in this region of Colorado that doesn't disappoint with its outdoor activities and modern-day attractions. Fitting that the main drag through Estes is called Elkhorn Ave? Be the judge when you visit.
Located just 90 miles from Denver, Estes Park has served as the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park for 100 years. The town has come a long way since the 1990s, most recently surviving the "500-year" flood.
