A beautiful spring scene in Estes Park, Colorado's top spring break destination

Spring is the perfect time for a vacation to Colorado, and no destination in the state is better suited for a spring break getaway than Estes Park. While Estes Park, and Colorado’s other vacation destinations, don’t offer the tropical warmth that some seek for spring break, there’s plenty to love. Here, the activities are endless, the mountain air refreshing, and the natural beauty knows no bounds.

The team at Black Canyon Inn highly recommends visiting Estes Park in the spring. After winter, this is the perfect place for a rejuvenating spring getaway. Let’s break down why Estes Park is the best spring break destination in Colorado.

Spring Break in Colorado: Estes Park

Located in northern Colorado, Estes Park is a charming mountain town. The unofficial base of Rocky Mountain National Park, travelers staying in Estes Park have easy access to one of America’s most beloved national parks. 

For the nature enthusiasts out there, visiting Rocky Mountain National Park is an absolute must. With 60 mountain peaks, sweeping valleys, wildflower-dotted meadows, rushing waterfalls, wildlife, and even glaciers, there is so much to see and do. You could easily spend your whole spring vacation in Rocky Mountain National Park and still miss out on some exciting adventures.

However, Rocky Mountain National Park is far from the only attraction Estes Park has to offer Colorado spring break travelers. Downtown Estes Park is incredibly charming. After a day exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, a return to civilization downtown is the perfect way to recharge your batteries. Downtown Estes Park offers over 300 shops, restaurants, and more, offering excitement for everyone. There’s also a riverwalk downtown, a nice place to relax and take in nature’s bounty while enjoying your shopping outing. 

Another highlight of Estes Park is Lake Estes. This pristine lake offers a picturesque setting for all sorts of lake activities like boating, paddling, and fishing. If you’d like to rent a boat or paddleboard, Lake Estes Marina has you covered. However, make sure to make your reservations in advance; Lake Estes Marina’s rental services are quite popular.
