Cathy Shull is a big supporter of Colorado and in particular rural Colorado. She believes that tourism can help this wonderful section of the state. There are a lot of cool day trip destinations in Colorado. Many of these smaller cities & towns have unique festivals and events that people from the front range can easily access and enjoy.
Colorado is not just the Rocky Mountains…We have beauty, history, and great people in the plains too.
Cathy’s vision for this website is to make sure that this area is promoted as there is currently no single site with information in a single spot.
Local residents can also benefit from this site because they don’t always know the unique things going on around them. Discover Southeast Colorado is designed to Educate, Inform, and Excite!
Shopping in rural communities helps the local economy by supporting the unique mom & pop stores. Shoppers can find authentic, novel, and unique products that the “big box stores” do not have in a relaxing setting.
The Main Street stores that you remember from days gone by are often reinvented and need to be rediscovered as the gems that they are. There are always opportunities to experience the local culture and interact with local residents, too.
Social media in Cathy’s viewpoint is not meant to replace traditional newspapers. She wants to help promote many of the nonprofit businesses.
Many of the nationally recognized chains can be found in Southeastern Colorado towns along with many bed & breakfast locations which welcome you to stay and enjoy their towns.
Eating local hometown cooking is always an exciting opportunity to learn more about each of the Southeastern Colorado towns. We also have many nationally recognized chain restaurants.
