We love strolling through downtown Estes. Some of my favorite places are Once Upon A Hive, Thirty Below Leather and Mama Rose's Italian restaurant.

What an adorable down town Estes park has. There are lots of restaurants, lodges to stay in and shops to explore. It reminds me of a little Gatlinburg!! It is already decorated for the winter holiday. Love the lights!!

We had a lovely day wandering around this beautiful place, we walked down from our hotel room as the parking was very difficult the weekend we were there. The place is full of gorgeous little shops and is easy walking.

We love the cute shops and just strolling the street. Be sure to go along the river walk too. This is a great place to stroll, window shop, get some ice cream and just enjoy.

There was some kind of festivities going on when we arrived. Live music and lots for kids to do. It took awhile to get there from Golden, CO but the ride was scenic and the town was quaint.

The smells, the festivals and the great sales during this time of year make it a must do on your list. Bring layers because you can start the day in a snow hat and end it in a t-shirt.

Like the atmosphere. Small town appeal. Easy access with ample parking, lots of shopping & local restaurants.

There were lots of pokestops and active gyms/players so those that were bored with shopping and eating could enjoy the weather, sit on a bench, and play Pokémon Go or chill out. There were lots of souvenir shops, candy, ice cream, coffee shops, and restaurants....More

There are a couple. Estes Park Brewery and Rock Cut Brewery are about a block off of the main strip.
