Fodor's Expert Review Rocky Ford

Pueblo Town/Village

Leaving the Rockies far behind, U.S. 50 takes you toward the eastern plains, where rolling prairies give way to hardier desert blooms and the land is stubbled with sage and stunted pinyon pines. One fertile spot—50 miles along the highway—is the town of Rocky Ford, dubbed the "Melon Capital of the World" for its famously succulent cantaloupes.
