Southern Colorado Film Festival
The Southern Colorado Film Festival cultivates conversation and enriches the spirit and creativity of the San Luis Valley by providing diverse independent film programming that is relevant and which connects the issues of our region to the world.
The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve
The tallest dunes in North America are the centerpiece in a diverse landscape of grasslands, wetlands, conifer and aspen forests, alpine lakes, and tundra. Experience this diversity through hiking, sand sledding, splashing in Medano Creek, wildlife watching, and more!
The Rio Grande Scenic Railroad
The railroad travels on tracks over historic La Veta Pass that date all the way back to 1878, but had been closed to the public in the 1950s and only used for freight. Now we didn't think scenery that spectacular, on rails that curve and wind through steep rocky grade, and mountain meadows with elk, eagles and bears, should remain closed forever. So we opened this line again for passenger train in 2006 initially offering excursions then expanding to holiday rides, dinner trains and mountaintop concerts. Come ride and you'll see what generations have missed. All aboard!
The Southern Colorado Film Commission
The Southern Colorado (SoCo) Film Commission is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping filmmakers of all types connect with the San Luis Valley and beyond in the southern reaches of Colorado. By providing film producers with a variety of free services we seek to make the regions we represent a more viable and attractive option for any film production and to support our local economy by driving more activity from the film industry in our region.
