Winter Park CO – In the Top 10 Authentic Small Towns List.
Journalist Steve Winston is a travel writer for the World Property Journal and spent some time in the Grand County area over the summer and named two towns in Grand County to his Top 10 lists.
The number one ranking went to Grand Lake which is 40 minute drive from Winter Park.
The Grand Lake area offers great year round activities including ATV rentals, boating on one of the 3 lakes (Grand Lake, Lake Granby and Shadow Mountain Resevior), fishing, golfing, horse back rides, hunting, nordic skiing, snowmobile rentals. This town is at the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park – a great treasure to visit! The quaint downtown area has an authentic “boardwalk” instead of concert sidewalks to access the shops, restaurants and live theater.
Winter Park CO was number five on Steve Winston’s list of the Top 10 Mountain Towns in America.
The numberous activities available within a close proximity to the downtown area were a highlight. These activities include: cross country skiing, hot air ballooning, alpine skiing, ice skating, mountain biking, hiking, fishing and zip lining.
A secondary reason was the breath taking views from the 12,000 foot peaks you drive through to get to the Winter Park area.
Now that it is December, Staywinterpark offers great lodging in the downtown Winter Park and surrounding areas for guests to enjoy the many activities listed above and it’s not too late to play for the upcoming holiday break.
