What we're about

This group is for those who thrill at enjoying fun events, festivals, or re-discovering some of the mysteries and miracles of Colorado and nearby states. Learn and enjoy celebrations and events throughout the midwest, explore the towns which became boom-towns overnight then fainted off into history. We will discover the fantastic tales of lost treasure, cursed mines and the Colorful Characters of our great history. We’ll be driving, or hiking, hotels or camping or B&B, but with a historical purpose to enjoying lost mines, ghost towns, battlefields, and anywhere historical events took place OR NEW EVENTS ARE HAPPENING!


Howdy and welcome to ROAD TRIPS AND GETAWAYS.






We’re going to be doing a lot of traveling, events, some hiking & camping (likely always a nearby place to stay if you are not a hiker or camper) while we visit historical "happenings" or new festivals and events ...... most of all we're going to be sure you have a good time, meet new friends, learn some things about our great county!!! As always, let’s be good to one another and have a good time!

Gregg, your organizer

PS. We have "expanded" our reach to midwest area.....yes, this used to be "Colorado Roadtrips & Getaways" and most of our trips/events will be nearby....but southern Wyoming, eastern Nebraska, northern New Mexico also have some fun events and places to visit. JOIN US!
