"Weekend in the Mountains" Denver Local Custom Tip by Toughluck

Denver Local Customs: 18 reviews and 9 photos


We discovered to our sorrow that everyone in Denver takes the weekend to go to Estes Park. Well, not everyone. Some go to Rocky Mountain National Park instead.

On weekends, there are a lot of people in both of these places. It's one of the reasons that the town and the park have shuttle buses running back and forth all summer. They're both beautiful places. If you enjoy people, music, dancing, and a lively atmosphere, go anytime in the summer and especially on weekends. If you prefer a lower key visit, pick spring or fall.
