Winter Park is a nice ski resort west of Denver. But in the summer, it’s a great place for the family to have fun. Its a nice drive thru the mountains, out of the heat of summer to get to Winter Park. They have alpine slides that you take a chairlift to. There is mini golf, bungees, a climbing wall, a gyro and a maze. There are hiking and biking trails, restaurants for lunch and lots of shops. All this is located in one area so no driving thru out the town. And did I mention that you get out of the summer heat of the city?
