A luxury vacation is something we all dream about, imagining how wonderful it would be to fly first class, dine at haute cuisine restaurants, and spend everyday shopping and buying everything we see. The reality is that not many of us have unlimited budgets and we have to find a less expensive way to see some of our favorite places. When your vacation expedition brings you to Winter Park, this guide proves that luxury can be a feeling that doesn’t have to be expensive as you take part in cheap things to do in Winter Park!
Day 1: A Visit to the Past
The best way to get to know more about a place you are visiting today is by exploring its past, and the Winter Park area has a rich and storied history that is fascinating to all. Your first day of your journey starts at Covens Ranch Museum, 77849 US-40 in nearby Granby, offering an exciting glimpse into the days of the wild west. This beautiful building was the first in the area and was also a stop on the stagecoach trail where the original owner’s wife would fix lunch for hungry travelers. Costing $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $3 for children, this excursion fits nicely into tight budgets.
Day 2: Take a Hike
When you think about it, simple hikes are the perfect things to do near Winter Park, CO, offering exercise, a chance to explore the countryside, and zero admission cost! Explore the rugged beauty of the Colorado landscape as you hike along the Fraser River Trail, enjoying the sounds of the river, the occasional glimpses of wildlife, and when you find yourself tiring, a quick rest on one of the benches found along the way will give your energy levels a recharge that is much appreciated! Pack a lunch and save on one of the most expensive parts of every vacation, the cost of dining out.
Day 3: Night Life
You could spend every evening in the comfort and quiet luxury of your Winter Park Escapes vacation hideaway, enjoying the wine or beer you purchased at the Liquor Depot, but getting out and experiencing a taste of the nightlife in Winter Park is not that expensive if you do it right. The Basement, 78295 US-40, combines the vibes of a popular night club with the cost and simple atmosphere of your favorite watering hole back home! Enjoy the daily specials—today they are offering barbecue pizza for only $6—cold drinks and tap your toes to the beat of the live music playing without breaking the bank!
