Winter Park: Winter Park has something for even the pickiest eater – from spicy ethnic meals to sushi to gourmet hotdogs. Known for its nightlife (and a taxi service to get you home safely), Winter Park is the place to find live music and dance floors to “shake that thang,” locally brewed beer and some of the best margaritas north of Tijuana.

Fraser: Nothing tastes better than that first cold, frosty beer at the end of a vigorous day on Fraser’s 600 miles of trails. This town has everything from vintage bars with hearty pub food to fine dining with an extensive wine list. The relaxing atmosphere of Fraser invites you to slow down, savor every sip and enjoy the view. Life at 8,500 feet can be relaxing and exhilarating at the same time!

Granby: Most of Granby’s coffee shops and restaurants are along Highway 40 which takes you into the middle of town. The shopping center on the east side of town has fast food options while downtown Granby offers quaint cafes, coffee shops, Pizza, Mexican … even upscale Greek and Mediterranean! So pull up that chair and pick up a fork!

Grand Lake: The town of Grand Lake offers countless options for filling that void! Greet the cool morning with a steaming cup of chai, a hot breakfast burrito or a fresh-baked gluten-free pastry at one of several bakeries along Main Street. Choose from a vast assortment of dinner choices ranging from a grilled hamburger with a dip cone on the beach to a juicy ribeye steak complemented by a dry Cabernet.
