Area Attractions and Events
Paonia, located at the foot of Mount Lamborn in Delta County and surrounded by federal lands, is your headquarters for engaging in outdoor activities and exploring all that Mother Nature has provided. Bicyclists and motorcyclists from around the world come here to ride the challenging mountain roads. Other folks come for the food and wine. Because the area has a number of wineries, as well as the highest concentration of organic growers in the state, Paonia is the farm-to-table capitol of Colorado. The inspiring beauty has made this a center for artists and musicians to pursue their crafts. We encourage you to visit Paonia, stay at the historic Bross Hotel Bed & Breakfast, and savor all that the area offers.
