Visiting Southern Colorado & Four Corners

People throughout southern Colorado enjoy earlier spring blooms than their neighbors to the north. This means visitors can launch all kinds of outdoor adventures, making communities from Durango and Cortez to Cañon City and Pueblo even more inviting. Popular annual festivals, once-in-a-lifetime events, and countless activities the whole family can enjoy – spring has sprung in southern Colorado.

It’s arguably the best time of year to experience the beauty of southern Colorado’s state parks and national parks. Cortez visitors are just minutes from Mesa Verde National Park, the National Park Service’s largest archaeological preserve. Durango visitors aren’t far from water recreation at Navajo State Park, and Monte Vista and Alamosa visitors are a quick car ride from activities like sandboarding, sand sledding, and stargazing at Great Sand Dunes National Park.

Mid-May visitors to Cortez looking for a relaxing way to get outdoors won’t want to miss the 2016 Mesa Verde Birding Festival. It’s five days of fun, with tours of nearby Ute Mountain leaving from the Cortez Cultural Center, May 11th through 15th. 

The weather’s right for an evening stroll through downtown Pueblo, and the First Friday Art Walk is the perfect excuse. Browse the works of local artists and enjoy a range of live music and other performances in downtown. Area shops, galleries, and venues open up to host a variety of events and activities on the first Friday of every month around 5 p.m.

Music lovers make their way west of Pueblo to Cañon City, May 6th through 8th, for the 2016 Cañon City Music & Blossom Festival. It’s three days of parades, pageants, block parties, rodeos, high school band competitions, and more in an all-around festive atmosphere along Royal Gorge Boulevard. 

The music doesn’t stop there – the 2016 Loaf 'N Jug Presents Boats, Bands & BBQ is a opportunity to listen to live bands while enjoying boat rides, beer gardens and more at the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk of Pueblo, June 10th and 11th. Don’t miss the BBQ cook-off, officially sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society. It’s the perfect start to summer.
