Rocky Mountain National Park

ADD TO MY TRIP

I have so many memories from coming to this place as a kid, I always wondered if it'd still impress me when I came back as an adult. And I have to say this park is still one of America's most beautiful. And the drive on Trail Ridge Road just after the snow had melted was about as tense as it was mesmerizing (there are no guard rails despite sharp turns over 2,000 foot drop offs). You have to spend at least one night in Estes Park (one of the park's entrances) at the legendary Stanley Hotel.
