Ultimate Skydiving Adventures

Skydiving Attraction in Delta, CO. We take you 7,500' above the ground and jump out of an airplane! We freefall and reach speeds of 120 mph. After we pull the parachute we float to the ground and enjoy views of the Grand Mesa and Black Canyon.

The only place to skydive on the Western Slope of Colorado. Ben, Giovanni and John are the best! Beautiful views and a lot of fun!

Confluence Park

Reviewed By Johanna N - Delta, Colorado

Visitors could very easily miss this wonderful amenity in Delta, Colorado. The path around the lake is beautiful, especially the part the parallels the Gunnison River. In addition, on occasion there are events at the fort near the lake that are reenactments of pioneer days.

Devil's Thumb Golf Club

Reviewed By Bob W - Evergreen, Colorado

this is really a fun golf course. it's not heavily played, easy to get on, and cost friendly. i booked my time through golfnow.com. i found it to be a very relaxing golf experience. the course is challenging but not to the point that you want to quit before you start. it's a good blue collar golfers course. play it, you won't be disapointed.

Was in recently to rent a tux with my son. The owner helped the young girl measuring to double check measurements. Both were helpful and pleasant. Davis Clothing has quality classic western wear at reasonable prices. An oldie but goodie.

Delta County Museum

Visit the Delta County Historical Museum, which is housed in an old fire house. Here, you can see many items of interest from Delta's pioneer days, such as house wares, toys, clothing and early farming and ranch utensils. Fossil, dinosaur bones and a world-class butterfly exhibit with specimens from all over the world are on display here. The museum also has on display a robe from the 1800s that was a gift from the King of Siam. Additionally, there is an eight-foot tall clock that used to be in the French Palace of Louis the 14th. The museum also displays a bridle crafted by the western legend Tom Horn. Many people stop in to hear the story of the McCarty Gang and the hero William Ray Simpson, a local hardware store owner who brought the gang down.

When first arriving in Delta, did not know about this little gem but so glad we found it when exploring the area. Lots of stuff everywhere and great stories of the peoples who built this part of the state. Surprised to see even a display about the once famous Dinosaur Quarry that was discovered high above Escalante Canyon. This entity also produces entertaining and historical events such as "Heritage Days" and the recent enchanting "Civil War Days". Great addition to Delta and more folks need to find it.

Fort Uncompahgre

Reviewed By Rita B

This is a replica of an early 1800's fort on the Old Spanish Trail. We keep learning about the early Spanish explorers who came through this region looking for a good trade route from Santa Fe New Mexico to California. During their explorations - they found out more about Colorado and the Colorado River.

This reconstructed fort is an educational opportunity to learn more about their mission and about how they lived. It is not far at all from Delta, so well worth the stop as you are travelling through the area.

Adobe Badlands

Reviewed By PuddlestheThird - Arizona

A different trail starting off of Highway 50 at the BLM trail called Alkali Basin Road will take you up and up and up climbing the Adobe Badlands with 50 mile views below you of the Uncompagrhe and San Juan Mountains above the Gunnison River canyons...As it climbs it becomes rockier and rockier and steep in many places. Is not meant for 4x4 jeeps or trucks but only for atvs and regular sized side by sides. It is gnarly and technical in several places and should not be taken alone or by newbies. 18.5 miles to the Dough Spoon Reservoir and the trails that are easier and can be done by jeeps and 4x4's. At the lake, the trail is actually in the water and you must ride in it to cross to other side. Then you must turn around and head back down or can take the easy road to the Devils Thumb Golf Course. Everybody brags after they do it (or some take a deep breath)...

Delta Family Fun Park

Reviewed By Mandy L

Delta Family Fun Park is always one of the stops that we make when my parents come from Utah to visit me and my children. It doesn't look like it would be much just from driving by, but behind that fence there is a very tricky miniature golf course, batting cages, small arcade, playground for kiddos, and a sitting area to eat your food from the snack bar. Throughout the year, I take my kids to the batting cages. I don't make a lot of money and can afford to do this for them. Also, they do get rewarded from the schools with free miniature golf when they do an exceptionally good job.

Valley Lanes Bowling

Reviewed By ferret50 - Arvada, Colorado

My parents live near here and when my wife and I come to visit, bowling is one of our favorites. The alley is dated but the service is pleasant and always consistent.
Never had a bad experience here and for a small town, bowling fits the bill.
