The Frontier Pathways, Highway of Legends, and the Sante Fe Trail will lead visitors to Southeast Colorado through the lands explored by our nation’s earliest trappers & traders.
In the 1870s, homesteaders staked their claims to establish Colorado’s rich ranching & agricultural heritage. Visit the stage stops and early outposts of Bent’s Fort, Cimarron, and Raton Pass. Witness how the town of Pueblo grew alongside the largest steel operation in the western US. Today Pueblo’s historic downtown, Zoo, Convention Center, and River Walk are enjoyed by visitors to the area. The Southeast region of Colorado affords grand views of the towering Spanish Peaks and Wet Mountains to fields surrounding the Arkansas River basin and on to prairie lands of the Comanche National Grasslands and pristine forest lands with the Sangre De Cristo mountain range lining the horizon like jetted teeth.
Make reservations for lodging at a BBIC member inn, and come walk in the historic footsteps of the early explorers while visiting Southeast Colorado.
