When you come to stay in Winter Park for the summer season, you’re coming to a summer wonderland! Here are a few ideas for your itinerary this year:
Winter Park Adventure Quest
If you want a hands-on experience when you go on vacation, then the aerial course at Winter Park Adventure Quest is the perfect place to spend your first day here.

Over 600 miles of Hiking Trails
Take your pick of the most beautiful hiking trails in the Rocky Mountains. Summer in the Rockies is magical, and the best way to enjoy it is to pick a trail that speaks to you and clear a whole day for a hiking trip.
