The Eastern Plains of Colorado is the largest, but most sparsely populated, of Colorado's regions. It occupies the easternmost third of the state, stretching from Nebraska in the north to New Mexico in the south. For most visitors, this area is mostly part of the scenic drive from the East as they head to Denver or the mountains.
However, there are plenty of places to check out if you need a pitstop or an educational lesson for the kids. The Eastern Plains is home to the Santa Fe Trail, the National Grasslands (preserved wild lands that provide a reminder of what the Great Plains were like before the arrival of settlers from the east) and Pony Express National Historic Trail.
