May 16th 2015 at 6:51 AM

If this summer, you're heading off to Monte Vista, include watching movies to your travel itinerary. Why I'm saying this is because this town offers a unique experience to movie goers. You can watch your favorite flicks on a big screen from the comfort of your car, truck, RV or hotel room.

Just two miles west on Highway 160, you will find a property with a combination of motel and drive-in theatre. This theatre is the most important feature of the motel adjacent to it. The hotel in Monte Vista is located within the close proximity of the scenic attractions, including the Great Sand Dunes National Park making it a preferred place to stay.

The two-storey motel has 59 non-smoking rooms, most of which provide excellent views of mountains and large outdoor movie screen. With this, they are equipped with all basic facilities for a comfortable living. Cable/satellite TV, coffee maker, free high speed wi-fi, iron and iron boards are provided. Breakfast is offered complementary with room booking.

Things-To-Do in Monte Vista
Boasting of natural beauty, Monte Vista attracts outdoor enthusiasts through the year. Sightseers generally visit this city in summer. It is recognized as the official tourist season. Monte Vista provides an array of adventure opportunities, including hiking, biking, camping and climbing in summer season. If you love skiing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling, winter is the best time to visit this beautiful town.

The Great Sand Dunes National Park is just few miles from Highway 160. The sand dunes are natural formations and the tallest in the North America. As temperature may increase during the afternoon, morning is the best time to climb up. If you're traveling with children, you can help them build sand castles. Slide down a massive dune only to cool off by the river side.

The Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge is a huge park that holds the annual crane festival. Sandhill cranes are considered the oldest visitors of San Luis Valley. They have been spending their spring break in the valley for millions of years. This natural phenomenon attracts wildlife watchers from around the country. While flocks of dancing cranes assemble, wildlife experts, biologists and naturalists present educational workshops to visitors.

The city also provides excellent opportunities to sports enthusiasts. Monte Vista is home to a 9-hole golf course where you can play a gentlemen's game. Foodies can drive to downtown to enjoy dining at local restaurants. The historic downtown is also a go-to place for shopaholics.

Of course, a trip to Monte Vista would be incomplete without watching a movie at Star drive-in theatre. Get there before dusk to get the best spot, if you plan to watch a movie from the comfort of your vehicle. For an enhanced experience, book an accommodation in Monte Vista. You can watch your favorite flicks from the comfort of your bed. The motel and the drive-in theatre are located in one single property. It's a family run business. So, you can be assured of home-like environment. Happy holidaying!
