Great Sand Dunes National Park—Colorado’s Beach
Add a visit to America’s newest National Park to your stop in the San Luis Valley. Begin at the Visitor’s Center to learn how these dunes (the tallest in the U.S.) came to reside against nearby mountains in the middle of a landlocked state. Then we suggest you try hiking, sand boarding, horseback riding or splashing in the seasonal Medano Creek that rises up in the sand during run-offs. Or for the shutterbugs in your group capture stunning day and nighttime photography of an environment that is constantly changing.
Open year round. Get more info here.
