Estes Park, Colorado
Home of Rocky Mountain National Park and so much more, Estes Park is yet another Colorado town that boasts some of the best mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, skiing, hiking, cycling, and any other outdoor adventure sport you can capture with a GoPro. Speaking of cameras, be sure yours is ready at all times to capture a commonly sighted huge elk herd along with other roaming wildlife. The rivers are packed with fish, making it a popular destination for those bearing rod and reel, but mountain exploration of all kinds remains the highlight here. While it’s not as crowded as other popular Colorado towns, once people catch a glimpse of this mountain activity, it quickly becomes a favorite for families, couples, and single adventurers alike.
