The Perfect Day Trip: Great Sand Dune National Park and The Colorado Gator Farm

There is no shortage of incredible adventures that are available when planning your trip to Salida, Colorado. Whether you are a first-time guest of Creekside Chalets or have been coming back year after year, there are even more experiences to be had just an hour away.  For example, the Great Sand Dune National Park and Preserve are located in Mosca, Colorado. This park contains a high-altitude desert consisting of 30 square miles of ever-shifting sand dunes. But, that is not all the area has to offer. After your hike, you can refresh your tired muscles in one of the area’s four natural hot springs. But you should not leave without dropping by The Colorado Gator Farm.

But, there is more to surf than the Arkansas River; for thrills and spills, head over to Salida’s favorite local Skate Park.
