Summer Fun in Winter Park – beat the heat and enjoy festivals!

Summer Fun in Winter Park – beat the heat and get ready to kick off the festival season in the COOL mountain air!

The official start of summer was on June 21st with the celebration of Summer Solstice, which is the longest day of the year and typically the hottest day of the year.  This is very evident by the scorching temperatures that have occurred around the US this week.  Daily high temperatures in Phoenix were 117 degrees for the 3 day in a row; Las Vegas has temperature from 113-117 and Palm Springs is forecasted to be a toasty 120 on Wednesday.  The heat will also extend into Texas with triple digit temps and upper 80s to low 90s in the mid-west.  Sounds like a need to escape and enjoy “mother natures natural air-conditioning” and beat the heat with StayWinterPark!  We offer a number of vacation rentals in the cool Rocky Mountains with daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s.  Check our weather widget on the home page – see the relief you can enjoy and check out latest Deals to save you money on your escape!
