Rosemount Museum

Reviewed By loadyourwagon - Atlanta, Georgia

What makes this place AMAZING is that all of the mansion's curtains, furniture, clothes, etc. are still in place! The man who donated the home... notice I didn't say house.... grew up in the home from age seven. He never married. Many family items remained in place and one almost feels like a voyeur! You can tell that this place was a beautiful home and it remains a beautiful place to tour. The woods are warm and skillfully carved. The appointments reflect the luxury of the home without being pretentious. It is just a lovely place. If you don't choose to tour this museum, you really are missing out.

Nice place for a walk when the weather is good. We walked from our hotel and had dinner at one of the restaurants along the river walk. We enjoyed our short stroll and could see this being a popular place once the weather warms up a bit more.

San Isabel National Forest

One of twelve national forests in Colorado, this one-million-acre forest offers snow-capped peaks and crystal mountain lakes.

Reviewed By Bob L - Winchester, Virginia

I have been here a hundred times over the years, but it is always breath-taking when I return. The cool breezes, the fresh scent of pine, the noise the wind makes as it threads through the trees, the reflection of the sky on the lake, trails blending into the new growth or old leaves and needles.

And it is always the same. I notice different things now that other visits over the last 50 years didn't show. I am different each time but San Isabel is always the same...beautiful.

Center for American Values

Come for a serene visit, walk hallowed ground, and leave inspired. We invite you to visit the Center for American Values, located on the Historic Pueblo Riverwalk in Pueblo, Colorado. Pueblo is the “Home of Heroes” and proud host of the 2017 Medal of Honor Convention. The Center is open daily from 10:00am to 4:00pm and is free. The Center is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization formed in 2010 for charitable and educational purposes. The Center’s visionary and Co-founder is Pueblo native, and Medal of Honor recipient Drew Dix. Along with its education focus, the Center hosts the “Portraits of Valor” gallery, an extraordinary collection of more than 150 portraits of our countries living Medal of Honor Recipients. The exhibit is one of two permanent displays in the country; the other is displayed in the Pentagon. The exhibit is a powerful example of the self-sacrifice of ordinary individuals who have served in harm’s way to protect the freedoms we all enjoy. Some guests choose to sit and reflect at the immense power of the portraits while others enjoy reading the inspiring quotes that accompany each portrait. The Center also includes a World Trade Center (WTC) Steel Memorial located at the Center’s entrance. In 2012 members of the New York City Fire Department visited the Center to dedicate the WTC Steel Memorial. Visitors are reminded of how vital the Center’s core values of honor, integrity and patriotism are to the freedoms we enjoy and to the future of our great country.

We were recently walking along the Pueblo Riverwalk and decided to visit the Center for American Values as two of our group had military backgrounds.

Sangre de Cristo Arts & Conference Center

Reviewed By Alan N - Pueblo West, Colorado

We went here to see the Children's Museum and the Western Art Exhibit. The paintings and etchings were really incredible. The third floor was closed so we didn't get a chance to see all that there was. The buildings are beautiful and the people working there very kind and helpful. They have live entertainment here, but we haven't gone to see any of the shows. The Children's Museum is for younger children, maybe toddlers. Our 4 year old grandson would be too old I think. They offer classes in various things, like photography. There are elevators so the stairs can be avoided if that is a problem.

Lake Pueblo, Colorado State Park

Reviewed By mary t - Highlands Ranch, Colorado

Be sure to check the website before you go. We go there only to learn the swim beach was closed and had been for months. Good news - there is plenty of water and other places in the park to swim. Do not go home! Drive around a bit or ask an employee and you will find somewhere to get wet.

Parking on the "beach" is permitted. We parked at the water's edge and walked right into the water. Take shade and sunblock. There is a nice breeze that continues when near the lake. Limited bathrooms (since we were not at the swim beach) so consider taking bags and wipes. Kayaking, paddle boarding, etc. is permitted from any location we found.

We toured the Raptor Center as a group today. It is a rather modest compound caring for injured birds. While their mission is to bring the birds back to health and then release them into the wild, there are some too badly injured to release....MoreThank you for your review, Mike! We appreciate when our visitors understand how seriously we take the care of our resident raptors and our raptors in rehabilitation. We hope you'll be back to visit us and the birds again soon!
