Celebrate mom and dad this year with a trip to Estes Park! Show your parents your appreciation for family vacations by giving them one in return! Estes Park is always a good destination for a family vacation but if you want to make it extra special for two important people in your life, add some of these activities or events to your itinerary and surprise mom this Sunday by telling her to pack her bags!

Sunday Brunch

Let someone else ask mom how she wants her eggs in the morning by heading out to brunch! The Other Side Restaurant has a Sunday Champagne Brunch from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday for $20!

Relax and rejuvenate

Take mom and dad to the spa and treat them to the rest and relaxation they undoubtedly deserve! On the River Massage & Healing Arts is offering Mother’s Day and Father’s Day weekend specials with hot stone massages and a facial for mom.

Visit Snowy Peaks

We’re not talking about the peaks of our majestic mountains; we’re talking about wine tasting at Snowy Peaks Winery! Enjoy a fine selection of Colorado wines in the tasting room and pick up some gourmet chocolates for a sweet treat for later. Snowy Peaks welcomes children with fruit juice tastings as well as into their “No Wine-ing Zone,” so you can talk to your parents about what’s really important: How wonderful they made you.

Rocky Mountain Irish Festival

The family that celebrates its heritage together stays together! Running over Father’s Day weekend is the fun Rocky Mountain Irish Festival and even if you’re not Irish you won’t be able to stay away from the festivities happening at the Stanley Park Fairgrounds from June 18 – 21. Enjoy dancing, drinking, and some unique contests with your family.

Estes Park Marathon

For the active family, kick off Father’s Day with the Estes Park Marathon on Sunday, June 21 where you can participate in the marathon, marathon relay, half marathon, 10K, or 5K. We understand it could be hard to keep your eyes on the prize with the beautiful Rockies surrounding you. Don’t worry if everyone in the family isn’t a runner, family and friends can act as cheerleaders while they wait at the start and finish lines, in downtown Estes Park, and around Lake Trail.

Whether you’re coming for a holiday or just to spend quality time with your family, Estes Park is the perfect destination for you this summer. Check out our Estes Park cabins and condos to see which vacation rental is best for your family vacation.
