After eating, stroll the town and enjoy the unique sculptures by artist, Bradford Rhea — make sure to see some of the famous trees. There are also a couple bronze sculptures as well as some murals in downtown. While checking out the art, check out the specialty shops, the brewery, an artist cooperative and an old fashioned popcorn shop.
Visit the Julesburg Welcome Center before starting either the Pony Express Trail or the South Platte River Trail Scenic and Historic Byway. Both trace historic routes through this part of the state.
Drive over to Wray to begin your day.
Take a morning stroll through the park to walk off some of your breakfast stupor.
Once you've finished in Wray, hop in the car and get on the road to Burlington.
Since a delicious breakfast is included in your stay at the Claremont Inn, no need to search for anything else. Just roll out of bed and go get you some!
Jump in your car and head to Limon for even more history.
