Just ask the locals. They’ll tell you. That’s why they live here.
Some will tell you it’s the air. Until you’ve taken a deep breath and smelled the pine, you can’t understand it. Or maybe it’s the sound of the breeze through the tall pines. Or the sound of the elk in the fall. Then again, it could be the sound of the rushing streams filled with cold spring water and fat trout.
Of course, some people might tell you that it’s the people. They just seem friendlier. It’s things like the little bell that rings when you open the squeaky door to the candy store. The pace of life just seems to be a little slower as everyone slows down and enjoys the little things.
If you’d like to take a breath of the alpine air for yourself you may need to learn more about the lodging Estes Park has to offer. Discover all of the town’s best deals on our specials page. Look for the link at the top of our home page.
