Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO

Who says you have to get on a plane to really feel like you “got away”? These scenic, historic, and all around relaxing destinations will be the perfect weekend trip to end the summer! With only a reasonably short drive ahead of you, you could find yourself spending the weekend in one of these fantastic vacation spots:

 

Estes Park and The Stanley HotelEstes Park is a beautiful town at the entrance to the Rocky Mountain National Forest, with endless activities available year around. From mountain biking to hot tubbing in the snow (in the winter), there are activities for everyone at every age!

If you’re visiting Estes Park and aren’t afraid to meet some “less than alive” community members, head over to The Stanley Hotel. This hotel is renowned for being the inspiration to Stephen King’s “The Shining”.

As you can imagine, there are many accounts of ghostly events taking place in the haunted room, and you can see for yourself by staying the night in the infamous room!

Distance from Denver: 70 miles, 1.5 hours

 

Manitou Springs and The Penny ArcadeManitou Springs is a quaint town that is often overlooked by people visiting its neighboring attractions, Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods. In Manitou Springs you will find amazing mineral hot springs that are free to the public, endless amounts of rich art and history throughout the town, and unique lodging like historic hotels, Victorian bed & breakfasts, and secluded cabins.

Within this town that often makes you feel like you stepped back in time, you will find a very fitting antique penny arcade. At The Penny Arcade, you will be entertained with pinball, skee ball, and even games like Pac-Man. “

Kids” of all ages are going to love this arcade!

Strawberry Park Hot Springs

 – A truly unique hot springs experience for everyone. After a short drive to just outside Steamboat Springs, you will find yourself relaxing in 104 degree mineral water that will soothe any ailments you have and bring you to a new level of relaxation.

When deciding where you’ll stay for the night, you can choose from the adventure of staying in an old train caboose or covered wagon, or opt for a more traditional tent or cabin.

No matter what you choose, you will have an unforgettable experience at these gorgeous hot springs.

You’ll find more than enough to do on weekend; hike the canyons or high desert ponderosa pines forest, take a helicopter tour, visit the Grand Canyons Auto Museum, which houses a rare and historic auto collection, go horseback riding or just relax at the tranquil spa.
