Food Scene
A local favorite - they make a fabulous chai tea. You can get your drink to go OR they will put it in a ceramic mug for you to sit and enjoy like you were at home! They have lots of indoor seating as well as outdoor seating along the river. Bring a jacket in the morning as it is chilly, even in the summer along the river, but what a wonderful way to wake up!

Claire's absolutely has hands-down the best Bloody Mary in all of Estes Park. They offer many varieties, but my favorite is the Bacon Bloody Mary (with a full strip of bacon in it!). Also love the Shrimp & Grits when it is on the menu!

It's our absolute favorite restaurant in Estes Park. The staff is friendly and the food is consistently good. The bar side is always hopping, but if you want it a bit quieter, you can eat on the other side of the restaurant or on the patio listening to the river. I especially like their spicy marg!

While I love our local coffee shop, Kind Coffee, I also like the local Starbucks. It's always nice to know exactly what you are going to get no matter where you are and the baristas at the Starbucks are great - the staff are locals too and we have to spread the love in our little town.

We like to order the "Colorado Nachos" and will often get them "to go". Sit at the bar and have a drink while they are being made, and then walk a block back to Rock Nook and enjoy them on the deck looking at the mountains!

Laura's and their "sister store" across the street, Hailey's has the best ice cream and caramel apples in town. My personal fave is the peanut, chocolate, caramel apple and I love that they will slice it and put it in a cup for you.

Probably the most popular starting place for hiking in RMNP. There are a couple of trail heads from Bear Lake but the most popular one leads to three more lakes... Nymph, Dream, and Emerald Lake.

This is definitely a moderate rated hike, with the most difficulty being at the very end of the hike as you summit. The features of this hike though are that you don't have to enter the National Park to get to the trail head and the views are incredible. At the very top, Gem Lake is peaceful and beautiful and worth the effort. A local favorite!

Shopping
Ok, so I might be a bit biased (since I am Mary Jane) but I think almost any gal can find something they love at Mary Jane's! Mary Jane's has many designer brands like Kendra Scott, Alex & Ani, Dogeared, MantraBands, Billabong, and much more. With home decor, clothing, gifts, baby, little girls, jewelry, and handbags, there is something for everyone. Enter via Elkhorn (main street), or come in the back entrance from the gorgeous river walk.

Safeway gets SLAMMED in the summer time! The best time to go is early morning or late at night. For a small sized store though, it really does have almost everything and the staff does a great job there. They work very hard to get you through the lines as quickly as possible.

Recently opened, Dollar General has many of the essentials you may have forgotten to bring with you. While there was a bit of an uproar to have a chain store like this come into Estes Park, even the most jaded locals are now shopping at Dollar General!
