The central plains of Colorado hold a magic all their own. Oceans of wheat and corn surround the roadways. Small communities located along Interstate 70 were formed during the development of the railroad. They welcome travelers with various amenities and quiet places to stay, play, and explore the culture of small town living. It is well known that sometimes the best things in life are found right off the beaten path. Turn back the hands of time and imagine yourself in a place where the colorful past is alive with fun and excitement for the whole family. Imagine losing yourself in Kit Carson County, Colorado.
