La Junta is the city that is the county seat and the most populous municipality of Otero County, Colorado, United States. Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site and Boggsville will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting La Junta side-trips: Fort Lyon National Cemetery (in Las Animas), Knapps Farm Market (in Rocky Ford) and Lamar (Petrified Wood Gas Station, Big Timbers Museum, & more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site, examine the collection at Koshare Indian Museum, take in breathtaking views at Picketwire Canyonlands, and take an in-depth tour of Otero Museum.
