Many motorists whiz right by the town of Burlington, on the eastern edge of Colorado's plains, eager to get to the mountains. But they might want to know what they're missing.
First, Burlington has one of the State Welcome Centers, to help visitors get acquainted with the many things to do and see in Colorado. Second, Burlington pays tribute to the state's significant Western and agricultural history with its well-preserved Old Town museum. It's more than a museum, really.
It's a collection of antiques-filled buildings with exhibits and information that help put the state's history into perspective. If you time it right, you might even catch a mock gunfight or a can-can show in the bar.
And don't leave without taking a look at the 1905 Kit Carson County Carousel, where you can ride not only horses, but hand-carved wooden giraffes and lions, whirling to the music of a 1909 Wurlitzer Monster Military Band Organ. You'll feel like a kid again.
If you happen to have your fishing pole along, try your hand at catching a walleye or other warm-water fish. Better yet, bring your boat or try your hand at windsurfing - there's plenty of wind out here.
