Estes Park Reviews

Write a review about Estes Park Tell people what you like or don't like about Estes Park…
One of the Best Places for Mountain Scenery 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Oct 06, 2019) I have been to Estes Park more than I have been to my birthplace (La Jolla, San Diego) in my entire lifetime and I have to say that I much prefer Estes Park over La Jolla just because hiking in the mountains feels more relaxing than going to the La Jolla Cove or Black's Beach in ...Read More La Jolla (for a swimming and kayaking snorkeling, etc). There's many attractions, including Casa Grande, (near Dairy Queen), the Dunraven, there's Bond Park, Village Pizza, and many more (including an old fashioned candy store; two to be more exact).

This is also a tourist destination much in the way that La Jolla, San Diego is, as people who visit Estes Park tend to visit it a lot, but just know that people live in La Jolla, this place is where most people BARELY live here, but that's what it is. I'd recommend Estes park to anybody who loves mountain hiking or who lives near Kansas, Utah, New Mexico, Nebraska, Texas, etc. Read Less
