SOCO began in the summer of 2016 as a project to bring community awareness to the surrounding counties as an opportunity for rural tourism in the Southeastern regions of Colorado. SOCO was a group project of Southern Rockies Crossroads of Cultures. The board created SOCO as a means to come together with the other counties within the southeastern region to ensure that the southern region of Colorado brought further awareness to the far quarter of the region as a tourist destination.
The state of Colorado is a beautiful and built upon heritage and cultural experiences to encompass more of the state by visiting the southern portion of Colorado. It offers beauty, enrichment and an exciting discovery to embracing tourism opportunities.
