Cresman Bars and Restaurants

Stop just for a minute, look around and you will quickly realize that you are in paradise. The natural beauty that surrounds Cresman is hard to put into words. In fact, we would say that the this is the kind of scenery that is better felt and experienced than described. The one thing that you want to make sure and do in this unbelievable wonderland is to explore as much of Rocky Mountain National Park as you possibly can. You definitely want to bring your hiking boots because there is over 355 miles of hiking trails and the places to hike range from flat lakeside strolls to steep mountain climbs. But don't worry, if you are more of a sit and drive around kind of person, there is a network of roads that provides amazing access to lowland meadows to aspen groves to swift flowing rivers to sub-alpine forests. Whichever way you decide is the best way to see the park, you will want to be on the lookout for wildlife like Bighorn, Elk and Mule Deer. Picnicking is another amazing way to enjoy the pristine beauty of this natural wonder. So, plan on any other number of ways to enjoy the park including camping, fishing and horseback riding. And don't worry about recharging your batteries because your pampered limousine ride and the venues below can do that just fine.

Frankie's Too! is the kind of place that you'll just love having on your go to list. The atmosphere is lively and fun. It seems like they're reaching for full restaurant status here, but it's got more of a bar-with-great-sandwiches vibe. But in the end that is not going to matter because those sandwiches are what we love best about this wonderful establishment. The prime rib sandwich is our absolutely the top favorite here. Also, the California turkey sandwich is exceptional in terms of taste and texture. The Cobb salads are superb and a nice nod to the original Brown Derby creation. The chips and fries are both great side dishes.
