South Central Colorado Feature
Top Reasons to Go to South Central Colorado
Hike a Fourteener: Coloradans collect hikes to the summit of Fourteeners—mountains that top 14,000 feet above sea level—like trophies.
Play on the Sand Dunes: At Great Sand Dunes, one of nature's most spectacular sandboxes, you'll feel like a kid again as you hike up a 750-foot dune then roll down (or sandboard) the other side.
Raft on the Arkansas: The Arkansas River is one of the most popular rivers for rafting and kayaking—from gentle floats to Class V rapids—in the United States.
Ride Up Pikes Peak: Katharine Bates wrote "America the Beautiful" after riding to the top of Pikes Peak. Today you can drive or ride the cog railway to the top for the same see-forever views.
Visit the U.S. Air Force Academy: Here you can learn more about the academy that trains future Air Force leaders and visit the stunning, nondenominational Cadet Chapel.
