Limon Museum

Raise Your Hand if You Have Ever Heard of Limon, CO?


limon,coNot many people have, so don’t feel bad if you asked yourself if the small town was even in Colorado. However, the natives of this town will tell you that there might be a few job opportunities in the business part of town due to the travelers and truckers passing through on the interstate.

While not exactly an ideal “Best Vacation Spots in CO For Families Pix”, the Limon Museum was fun the first time around, especially for my kids. But you don’t have to take my word for it. You can see for yourself by the pix I took shown below. ENJOY!

So, there you have it, folks! Even a boring, small town can have its perks for family fun.

It may be a place that fills the void when you are passing through town, but it is worth it to see if you are stuck in a rut for things to do and you can’t leave.
