Westcliffe is a statutory town that is the county seat of Custer County, Colorado, United States. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Bishop Castle and Crestone Artisans Gallery. Attractions like South Zapata Lake and Great Sand Dunes National Park make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Westcliffe side-trips: Off-Road Tours (in Buena Vista), Mission: Wolf (in Gardner) and Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve (Little Medano Creek, High Dune Trail, &more). There's much more to do: hike along Rainbow Trail, take some stellar pictures from UFO Watchtower, take in the dramatic scenery at Zapata Falls, and identify plant and animal life at San Luis State Park.
