The oldest coffee shop in town and the most delicious - in my opinion anyway. Jen roasts her own coffee right in front of you. And her deli is stocked full with all sorts of amazing yumminess! My personally favorite is her homemade chicken salad! It never disappoints.

One of the coolest old ghost towns in Colorado. Historically preserved and protected, get a feel for life in the late 1800’s mining town. Walk among the old houses and buildings and stop in at the local shop to do some antiquing. You can buy seeds and feed the chipmunks right out of their hand - the kids love it.

Sightseeing
Encompassing more than 21,500 acres of canyons, rivers, and woodland, the Browns Canyon National Monument was established in 2015 by President Obama. The canyon itself was carved out by the Arkansas River; it can be explored on foot or on horseback during the summer, and winter visitors can snowshoe or cross-country ski. Visitors can also experience the beauty of the canyon by taking one of the many whitewater rafting trips on offer. There are six campsites along the riverbank, including one with a small outdoor amphitheater and another with an observation deck over the water.
