Romantic Things to Do in Estes Park

Estes Park is chock full of romantic activities for you and your partner to experience on your getaway. No matter what your interests are, you’ll find the perfect activity for you.

Our top recommendation is to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. Rocky Mountain National Park is filled with gorgeous scenery; enjoy mountain peaks, picturesque forest settings, tranquil lakes, waterfalls, and more. On your outdoor adventure, you’ll have plenty of one on one time with your partner. Consider packing a picnic lunch, a beautiful and romantic way to savor your time together and the natural scenery that surrounds you. 

Another romantic experience is strolling the Riverwalk in Downtown Estes Park. On your journey down the Riverwalk, you’ll pass tons of local boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants to check out. Of course, on your walk, you’ll also enjoy the sights and sounds of the Big Thompson River and Fall River. 

Head to the Estes Park Aerial Tramway to get a different perspective on Estes Park. The tramway will take you to the summit of Prospect Mountain. Throughout the ride, you’ll enjoy a birdseye view of Estes Park and all of its gorgeous scenery. Remember that the Estes Park Aerial Tramway is seasonally operated and only open in the summer months.
