When you visit Historic West Elkhorn in downtown Estes Park, your childhood memories have been preserved. A personalized Christmas ornament, walking past deer & elk, seeing salt water taffy made before your eyes, or trying to eat the biggest, juiciest burger ever placed before you are just a few pieces of the experience that await your return.
West Elkhorn is a special place in Estes Park made up of independent businesses who provide you the chance to select the perfect gift, meal or memory for your family today, in the midst of the colorful past of our neighborhood. We're working on a history project that tells the story of West Elkhorn as you stroll past the stores and chat with the shopkeepers .
Start at Elkhorn and Moraine Avenue in the center of downtown Estes Park, then turn your eyes West.
You'll see classic storefronts which have only changed hands a few times in the last hundred years and retain the style that makes Estes Park a familiar second home to so many families who return year after year, for generations. The old Community Church building and water wheel are among the most recognized features in downtown Estes Park, and they're both in our neighborhood. Business owners will stop what they're doing to chat about your visit, and they are glad to see you.
Stay tuned for events that will give you the chance to eat, dance and play in the middle of the street.
Historic West Elkhorn is a special place to reminisce and enjoy old and new, when you visit Estes Park, Colorado.
