Estes Park ranked as 'trending destinations' by TripAdvisor
"The 'Travelers' Choice 2021' rankings have been released by popular travel website TripAdvisor and two Colorado towns made the cut for their 'trending destinations' list.
On a list of 15 United States towns and cities, Estes Park earned a rank of 7th and Breckenridge earned a rank of 11th. Gatlinburg topped the list.
Estes Park was noted for serving as a basecamp for Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as for common wildlife sightings. Roughly an hour and a half from Denver, this quaint town has been a top destination for tourists for decades.
Among the likely reasons that Breckenridge is a trending destination would be the large ski resort, the many hiking trails, and many well-known events hosted in the town throughout the year – all within a relatively close proximity to the heavily populated Front Range metro area when compared to many other resort towns."
