Alamosa County is a Colorado summer vacation destination everyone needs to experience for events, festivals, concerts, adventure, beauty and history. Alamosa is home to the world's most spectacular sandbox: the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. A stop at the visitor center before or after you dig your toes into the sand will explain how one of earth’s magnificent natural possessions was created. Other things to do around the park include, climbing to the top, sand skiing, sand sledding, hikes, free ranger programs and more. After you hit the Sand Dunes, stay in Alamosa where you can ride the Rio Grande Railroad on a scenic trip or on the weekends, the train will take you to the stage in the middle of nowhere where national touring acts like Michael Martin Murphey, Pure Prairie League, and Exile perform for the passengers. It’s an awesome family adventure and was recognized by USA Today as one of the “10 Best Outdoor Concert Venues You  Shouldn’t Miss." Alamosa also hosts great rodeos, festivals, and free concerts throughout the summer and winter and if you still haven’t had your fill of eye candy check Zapata Falls, and the annual Monte Vista Crane Festival in March. Live history with a visit to the Luther Bean Museum or Ft. Garland.  Take a historical walking tour in downtown Alamosa or enjoy a drive along the Los Caminos Antiguos Scenic Byway, catching a glimpse of the robust culture of the San Luis Valley.   3 hrs and 30 mins from Denver (get directions)
