Spring is one of the more beautiful times of year here in Estes Park, as nature leaves the chill of winter behind to renew life upon the land. With so much wildlife and scenic beauty about, one would almost expect to see the Easter Bunny hopping about, leaving eggs about the Rocky Mountain for little ones to find. There’s a magic here you won’t find many other places during Estes Park Easter, especially when you’re staying in a log cabin that’s close by and attuned to nature.
Be Very Quiet When Looking for Rabbits
We can’t guarantee that you’ll spy the Easter Bunny hopping about the Rocky Mountains, but if you’re out and about at the right time during Easter in Estes Park you may spot one of the Rocky Mountains’ snowshoe hares, so named for the large hind feet that act as snowshoes. They have two fur coats, a primarily white one in the winter and a gray-brown one for the summer. The hares are mainly nocturnal and feed mostly at dusk and dawn. Their days are spent sleeping, grooming and avoiding predators. Their mating season is from March to August.
Candy is Dandy
What is an Estes Park Easter without chocolate and jellybeans? One that’s lacking in sweetness, that’s for certain. For all things chocolate you’ll want to try the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory at 517 Big Thompson Avenue. The factory sells milk chocolate, dark chocolate, nutty chocolate, fudge, truffles, and much more. Sugar-free chocolates are also available for those with dietary restrictions or who are simply looking to cut down on their sugar. And then there’s the Old Fashion Candy Store at 102 West Elkhorn Avenue for a more traditional throwback to candy shops of yesteryear.
An Estes Park Easter Dinner You Won’t Forget
No need to stress about how you’ll prepare the traditional Easter in Estes Park ham, or a roast lamb or chicken. Our cabins’ kitchens can come with custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, serving dishes, and utensils to ensure that you can whip up and serve your culinary creations in comfort. There’s also a variety of top-notch restaurants that Estes Park is home to. Consider the Waterfront Grille, located conveniently close to our cabins at the Estes Park Resort.
