This guide to some of the most romantic events and activities for Valentine’s Day in Estes Park will help ensure that this year’s gift will definitely be hard to top next year when Valentine’s Day rolls around again!
A Head Start on the Celebration
Valentine’s Day is on a Wednesday in 2024, and it may be difficult for some couples to get away in the middle of the week, but because holiday limits are for amateurs, getting a head start on the celebration with an early February visit and an exploration of our annual Estes Park Wine and Chocolate Festival! Offering five hours of sweets, wine, and fun on February 3rd at The Estes Park Event Center, your sweetest will be excited that the holiday will last longer than the normal 24 hours. Find yourself with a couple of weeks’ worth of vacation time? Why not spend all those days in the comfort of our holiday hideaways and earn the title of Gift Giver Supreme?
The Traditions You Keep
Creating your own traditions as a couple will help create memories that last forever, and breakfast bed on the most romantic day of the year is an easy one to keep, especially with the fully equipped kitchens found in our Voyago Vacation Rentals sanctuaries. Toss together her favorite breakfast foods, being sure not to forget the mimosas, and start the day out on the right side of the bed! If kitchen work isn’t your forte, however, food delivery services are available in Estes Park and delicious foods can be delivered to your doorstep in time for breakfast.
Missed the Festival?
Traditionalists will want to make certain that their holiday activities take place on the holiday itself, so there is a very real possibility that you may have missed the Wine and Chocolate festival. But that doesn’t mean you have to skip the sweet step, as Estes Park offers a wide variety of candy and chocolate shops, including Laura’s Fine Candies, located at 129 E Elkhorn Avenue. Offering everything from popcorn to toffee to the sweetest chocolates, your Valentine’s gift is one that will keep giving all day long.
Sip and Savor
Snowy Peaks Winery, 292 Moraine Avenue, offers a taste of Colorado wines and can be the most romantic of all your Estes Park adventures. Providing gourmet foods to enjoy along with your sipping activities and periodically providing live music as an accompaniment, your romantic adventures can continue back at your Voyago love nest when you purchase your favorite flavors to carry home with you. Tasting even better when paired with the chocolates you purchased from Laura’s Fine Candies, this savory adventure will be one of your favorites.
Take the Fun Outside
The Estes Par landscape is a sight to behold during the winter months and snowshoeing is an amazing way to get up close and personal. Kirk’s Mountain Adventures offers guided snowshoeing tours, taking guests to the most beautiful parts of the countryside while providing the snowshoes we are pretty sure you didn’t pack in your luggage. Choose between a 3-, 6-, or 8-hour trip and fall in love with panoramic views, pristine countryside, and the sparkle in your favorite hiking partner’s eyes!
The Quickest Way to the Heart
Valentine’s Day would not be complete without a special holiday dinner, and Bird & Jim, 915 Moraine Avenue, celebrates love with the tastiest of meals. Offering a quite intriguing origins story (although we doubt it will compare to yours) and a menu filled with all-American favorites that will be a perfect complement to your love story, the Cast Iron section may be where you want to stop, especially after your three-hour or longer snowshoeing tour of Estes Park. Offering an extensive wine menu and an innovative cocktail one, we can’t help but think the dessert portion, starring a sweetly wonderful Apple Shortcake, will be the quickest way to each other’s hearts.
