A Dillon vacation starts with a trip to the Dillon Marina. The reservoir in the town of Dillon is one of the best water recreation areas in Colorado, as it is framed by some of the most stunning mountain views you can find. The water is clear, and the air is crisp and cool. The 3,300-acre area is fed by the Snake and Blue Rivers and the Ten Mile Creek. The Dillon Marina allows you to rent pontoon boats, runabouts, and sailboats. You can charter a captained tour of the reservoir as well.
A summer Dillon vacation is not complete without experiencing the activities in and around the town of Dillon. Rent an ATV and explore the rugged mountain terrain around the town. If this is a little too much adventure for you, consider a more comfortable jeep or hummer guided tour of the Colorado wilderness. These opportunities get you off the popular path, and allow you to see some of the more secluded areas.
If you want to take a step back into the past, consider signing up for a Colorado cattle drive. You can try your hand at rounding up a herd of Longhorn Cattle in the mountains of Colorado. The drive is great for riders of all ability levels, from newbies to seasoned pros. Plan on running the herd for about three miles of beautiful mountain areas.
