In eastern Colorado, in an expanse of grassland sometimes referred to as Colorado's Outback, Burlington takes you back to frontier days. That's especially true when you visit Old Town, an authentic turn-of-the-20th-century village with a museum and more than 20 historic buildings, including a sod house and a saloon.
Another local gem is the Kit Carson County Carousel, a fully restored and operating 1905 wooden carousel that's a National Historic Landmark. It includes 45 animals and a 1912 Wurlitzer Monster Military Band Organ. Located at the county fairground, the carousel is open Memorial Day-Labor Day. 150 mi/240 km east of Denver.
