Things to do in Winter Park for a Day Trip

There are few more places that are better to spend a day away to relax than here in Winter Park, as we have a number of amazing outdoor things to do in Winter Park that are available all year round that make for the day trip of a lifetime!

Explore the Breathtaking Rocky Mountains During Your Winter Park Colorado Vacation

One of the best parts about the town of Winter Park is that we are nestled just on the edge of the legendary Rocky Mountains, and this means that the activities and opportunities to spend a day exploring are truly endless! Get outside and explore incredible scenic vistas that look like the most beautiful paintings come to life, flowing waterfalls and streams created from melting snowcaps, crystal clear lakes, and so much more! There are a number of hiking trails that both begin and end in the Winter Park area, and many of these trails are pet friendly as well, so you don’t have to worry about leaving your four-legged friend at home to miss out on all the fun! There are few day trip ideas better than packing a delicious lunch, putting on some comfy shoes, and spending the day exploring one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the entire world!

Spend a Day Taking a Hot Air Balloon Ride!

Sure, you could be like everyone else and explore the great outdoors here in the Winter Park area on foot, but you’ve never been just like everyone else, have you? You’re different. You’re a risk taker, a daredevil, someone who marches to the beat of their own drum. Sound like you? Then spend a day exploring by taking to the skies!
