There is a rich array of things to do in Custer County. For the action oriented there is mountain climbing, hiking, off the road trails, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. If you want to enjoy the outdoors in a more passive way we have great places for photography and bird/wildlife viewing. Or just enjoy the breathtaking beauty through the window of your automobile as you travel the scenic byways. And don’t forget, we are a short drive to snow skiing, white water rafting, the Royal Gorge and all the fun southern Colorado has to offer.
If your bend is more towards history and the arts, the valley comes alive with music during the summer and fall with several music festivals. Enjoy our art galleries and annual art events. Take in live theater or a first run movie in the historic Jones Theater. Take a stroll through the ‘Cliffs Commercial District to discover our outdoor sculpture and shop along the way. Our museums take you back to a rich heritage in silver and gold mining, the railroad and ranching. Whatever Colorado fun or adventure you are imagining – you can find it in the Wet Mountain Valley!
