Plenty to Do in Winter Park
The options of how to fill your days inside this giant recreation area are limitless, so there will never be an awkward moment where you’re left wondering, “what now?”
If you’re visiting in the cooler months, skiing and snowboarding never disappoint in this amazing winter wonderland. But if it’s a slower pace you crave, snowshoes and cross-country skis are also available to rent, sleds are easy to come by, and hot chocolate and warm fires await at just about every location. If it’s a unique adventure you seek, you’ve come to the right place. Snuggle in next to each other underneath a warm blanket as you soak in the gorgeous winter views when you book a sleigh ride through one of our multiple local ranches. You can even stop trailside for marshmallows and hot chocolate over a warm crackling campfire. Another local favorite is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dogsled through the Rocky Mountain range, taking in some amazing views along the way of the 13,000-foot peaks, the Continental Divide, and the phenomenal landscape of trees, snow, and furry critters. Regardless of which adventures you choose to embark on, rest assured that snowman building is encouraged at all times.
If it’s a summer getaway you desire, we encourage you to try something neither one of you has ever done before. Nothing bonds two people like a little fear, excitement, and desire. Find comfort in each other as you attempt horseback riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, boating, white water rafting, off-roading, or daring the Alpine Slide.Pack a romantic picnic and embark on a scenic drive, opting perhaps for a cruise through the Rocky Mountain National Park, keeping your eyes peeled for elk, bear, and moose sightings. Or opting instead for a rough dirt road adventure to the top of the Continental Divide by way of Corona Pass, stopping along the way at the old train trestle and rewarding yourselves at the top with stunning views and brisk mountain air to kiss your cheeks. At the end of the day, get a bird’s eye view of the 3,000 acres of terrain Winter Park has to offer from the scenic gondola ride.
No matter what time of year you visit, there are some activities you can always partake in. Relax aboard an old steam locomotive provided by the Georgetown Loop Railroad. Soak in the nostalgic vibe of mountainous train travel as you traverse the Clear Creek Canyon, providing you unmatched views as well as opportunities to tour the historic Lebanon Silver Mine. Bask in the glory of the healing mineral waters of a Rocky Mountain natural phenomenon. Just a short 30-minute drive from Winter Park, throw on your swimsuit and take your pick from 23 natural springs of varying temperatures at the Hot Sulphur Springs Resort & Spa. Your body and minds will thank you.
There’s also food and drink galore! No matter what your heart desires, creating a romantic atmosphere is no problem with the huge variety of restaurants at your disposal. Take in the fun night life with some original food and cocktail concoctions at Pepe Osaka’s Fishtaco or opt instead for a casual dining experience of delicious comfort foods at Randi’s Grill & Pub. Craving something a little more intimate? Opt for takeout and never leave the comforts of your luxurious abode.
