Estes Park, Colorado, is a dog-owner’s dream. Though pets aren’t allowed on trails in the Rocky Mountain National Park, they can run wild in the Roosevelt national forest, test their skills on the obstacle course at Estes Valley Dog Park and join you on the trail around town. You’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome when you check into one of these pet-friendly hotels in Estes Park – bookable with Culture Trip.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
