Winter Park Vacation

My Motto - Work hard, play hard | That's my motto since "Work like a Farmer, Party like a Rockstar" is already taken.

In late July, my family and some friends spent a long weekend in Winter Park Colorado at a friends condo. We spent a full day at the Winter Park resort doing all of their summer activities, including;
  • The Alpine Slide
  • A Giant Maze (fun for adults AND kids)
  • Mini-Golf
  • Lunch at the mountain top
  • Leaps & Bounds Bungee
  • Hiking
  • The GyroXtreme
  • The challenging Rock Wall
Winter Park downtown area has this great park called Hideaway Park. We grabbed some blankets, went to Hernando's Pizza Pub and got some pizza, and took it over to the park. They had local musicians there on Thursday night and we ended up buying the c.d.'s from the group that was playing.

We did some sight seeing on some driving trails that were recommended to us by the owners of the condo. The biggest surprise of the evening came when as we were coming back down the mountain trail, we turned the corner and saw a large moose walk into the middle of the road, turn back to look at us and keep walking. It was one of the coolest things that I had ever seen, and I will post our picture as soon as I get it off our camera.

Our condo that we stayed in was like a Home away from home. The large kitchen allowed for many people to cook at once, and not get into each other's way, and the views looking out the windows were stunning. The 3 bedrooms were all very large and laid out well. We look forward to vacationing in Winter Park with family and friends again, and know that we will be headed to Winter Park Lodge -- Check out their website at www.wplodge.com.
