Empires228 Very well said, I agree with you. There are many people out on the eastern plains I've talked to who feel like the state of Colorado only care for the front range. I'm not sure when the last time when the last time when you were down that way, but La Junta has grown some. They've had quite a few business come in, and a brewy (I believe). There's been talk of a prison coming in also, not sure how that's going. It's still not my favorite place out of all the little towns to visit though. As for Lamar, I was born and raised there so it would be my favorite also lol. In the past few years Lamar has really been working on having a charming downtown area. They are looking to attract more tourism/business to their side of Colorado. i've heard there was talk of a halfway house to come in. I don't know much about it though. Rocky Ford, Las Animas, and Hasty all make me sad. Hasty is a state park and it seems a bit neglecting compared to others I've seen in the state.

If you're interested here's a couple links with a little info of what Lamar has planned. PEP gaining traction - Lamar Ledger

Wilberry a lot times my opinion of Eastern Colorado comes off as biased lol. However as I said before the Eastern half of the state is very rich in history. From the Santa Fe Trail, Bents Fort, Camp Amache, the Sand Creek Massacre, Picture Canyon, etc. there is so much to see/learn. Even if someone isn't interested in living in the area I believe visiting is worth the trip.
