The Small Town In Colorado That Comes Alive During The Winter Season
While Colorado is a world-class destination year-round, it manages to come to life even more when covered in a blanket of snow. While the state as a whole is stunning, there is one small town, in particular, that becomes even more glorious, which is the aptly-named Winter Park. Here is why Winter Park is one of the best winter trips in Colorado:
Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Winter Park may be one of Colorado's newest communities (it was incorporated in 1979!), but what it lacks in age, it makes up for in charm!
Situated at the south end of Fraser Valley, Winter Park's claim to fame is skiing and snowboarding, which can be accessed via the famous Winter Park Resort.
Thanks to the area's popularity and its slopes, you can get to Winter Park aboard the Amtrak Winter Park Express, a seasonal train that transports guests between Denver's Union Station and the foot of the slopes.
While the slopes are reason enough to visit, there is even more to love about Winter Park, beginning with other recreational opportunities a la hiking, ice skating, sleigh rides, and more.
What is a great town without ample shopping, restaurants, and entertainment options? Winter Park has all of the above.
Need we mention that Winter Park in the winter is just plain magical?
If you need a place to stay, you can find perfect accommodations in Winter Park, thanks to the resort, cabins, motels, and rentable homes.
