Although it is always nice to get back to normal after the big winter holidays are passed, we often find ourselves missing the closeness and togetherness that each holiday represents! Fortunately, a new batch of holidays are waiting in the wings, each one destined to be memorable as we hang out with family and friends. The next one up to bat, Easter, is not one normally spent in travel mode, but we think it should be! Especially as our Visit Winter Park Lodging holiday hideaways offer all the comforts of home and a welcoming ambience designed to bring families and friends even closer together! If your Easter journey finds you in Winter Park, Colorado this April 17th, this guide to all the fun you can have during your stay will perhaps lead you to the start of a new holiday tradition!
Add some Winter Park Easter Charm to your Seasonal Sanctuary
The Easter Lily brings charm to the celebration of the holiday and there is no reason why you can’t add one to the décor of your Visit Winter Park Lodging home away from home. Stop by the Safeway in nearby Fraser and explore the beauty of the Easter flowers in their floral department. Located at 40 CO Road 804, the ever-present Easter Lily is sure to be on display, so go ahead and buy one for the dining room table and let the scent of the lily sweeten up your Easter celebration as it wafts through the house bringing smiles to all who experience its scent!
Winter Park Ski Resort stays open until the middle of May, so as the Easter Bunny hops on over for his annual visit, you can enjoy the waning days of the ski season. For those who haven’t quite mastered the skills of schussing, hiking is always a good option, just be sure to bundle up to stay warm during your travails. Take a hike along the Fraser River Trail, enjoying views of the landscape as the river passing below provides a “musical” accompaniment to every step you take. This enjoyable hike is an easy one, lasting 5-miles roundtrip, and is perfect for enjoying one last Easter snowball fight! For those seeking more of a challenge, the Yankee Doodle trail (bet you’re humming the Yankee Doodle song right now!) leads you high above the horizon, giving Easter hikers a workout that will help pre-empt any extra pounds that may drift to your hips after the Winter Park Easter feast!
A Feast to Remember
The best part of most holidays is the family feast and Easter is no exception. Choose to create a meal that will never be forgotten in our fully equipped gourmet kitchens or give mom a break and explore the culinary landscape of Winter Park! The Waffle Cabin in Winter Park Village offers a sweet way to start your day while Doc’s Roadhouse is destined to be your favorite lunch spot in all of Winter Park, even if they don’t offer an Easter Brunch! Moffat Station Restaurant has an amazing Marinate Lamb Leg, served with roasted cauliflower, spiced carrots, creamy polenta, and lamb sauce, ensuring that your Winter Park Easter celebration will be a deliciously memorable one!
Every family has their own traditions for family celebrations, including Easter, some want to start the day with a sunset service, others prefer to spend the day together playing board games, and still others, may prefer to take this time to participate in family outings. Our own families love to go to the movies on Easter, after all the feasting and egg hunting has been completed, and if that is one of your holiday traditions, you may be excited to learn that “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” is scheduled to be released on Easter weekend and is sure to be showing on the big screens at the Foundry Cinema & Bowl, located at 22 Second Street in Fraser!
With the Family
These are just a few ideas on how you can fill the minutes of your Easter break and we are sure you have more of your own, but before we leave you to your own devices, we have one last thought.
