Whether you're there for the snowboarding, skiing, tubing, or just good old mountain fun, Winter Park is the epitome of a cute mountain town nestled in the Colorado Rockies. Not only does Winter Park house one of the best snowsports resorts in Colorado, but it's home to great food and bars. Winter Park is a great weekend getaway for locals, being just a few hours from Denver, or a relaxing winter vacation destination. Winter Park Resort is budget-friendly, being one of the more affordable mountains, and hotels in the area are abundant. If you're looking for a low-key vacation away from the frilly resorts (Vail, Breck, or Aspen), then Winter Park is your place. We've been going there for three seasons (from Florida!) and can't think of a reason why we wouldn't go for at least three more!
