One of the most popular parks in the country, Rocky Mountain National Park welcomes 3 million visitors each year and still manages to nurture cravings for solitude.
1. Bear Lake Trailhead
Colorado: Enjoy one of the park’s easier hike. For a little more challenge, try the 2.8-mile Mills Lake trek with 14,259-foot-tall Longs Peak views.
2. Moraine Park Campground
Colorado: Pull over for prime wildlife watching. More than 3,000 elk and 800 bighorn sheep live in Rocky Mountain National Park, and this U-shaped valley is a regular gathering spot for bugling elk.
3. Stanley Hotel
Colorado: Wind down with cocktails and dinner at the elegant 103-year-old, white-pillared landmark. Guided ghost tours reveal how Stephen King was inspired to write The Shining while staying in room 217.
