Evergreen, Colorado

The charming main street of Evergreen, Colorado.

I just returned from a family wedding in the charming town of Evergreen, Colorado. The snow-capped Rocky Mountains were breathtaking, even if the temperature did hover around 70 degrees! It’s a lovely place with great restaurants, its own mini-boardwalk lined with charming shops, and picturesque views everywhere you look. Lots of beautiful parks where elk roam freely, too. Would I trade it for Maine? Not for a moment. But it’s a great place to visit and filled with friendly, welcoming people. Surprisingly, a lot of them are young people from New England who have moved West for a while to try out a different part of the country. To a person, those I met mentioned missing the colors of a New England fall and, especially, the sight and sound of the ocean. It will be waiting when they return–once New England is in your blood, you never lose it.

  1. Karen I live in Evergreen and own a cabin on Sutton Island (Cranberry Isles) in Maine. My wife (whom I met on the NE Harbor dock waiting for the mailboat) and I have the ‘Maine vs Colorado’ conversation at least once a year….so far we’ve opted for the sunshine and mountains of Colorado over the ocean and fall colors of Maine. The debate will no doubt continue! Two great corners of the world.

    • Hi, Andy. You are right. Both places are beautiful, if very different. I’m a New Englander through and through, so Maine wins this round–but I loved Evergreen and had a memorable dinner at the Bistro at Marshdale. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
