About 45-50 min. down the hill from Estes Park is the wonderful town of Fort Collins, CO. Take Hwy. 34 East (a gorgeous drive alongside the river), make a left in Loveland onto Hwy. 287 and go north a bit. Make your way straight into the Old Town Square, rated one of the 2010 Dozen Distinctive Destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
If you are a first time visitor to Estes Park and the surrounding Rocky Mountain areas it might be wise to think about hiring a guide. Not only does the guide know the “in” places to go, taking you there quickly and directly, but he/she can provide an original, one-of-a-kind experience tailored to your own unique wishes.
