Things to do


As an officially designated International Dark Sky Community, Westcliffe (and nearby Silver Cliff) have jumped through hoops to make sure their town is one of the darkest in the country. Special light shields are used to prevent light from escaping toward the sky and massive mountains flanking each side of the town prevent city glow from cities along the Front Range.

If you visit, please be respectful of this town’s quiet and serene way of life.
