GATEWAY TO THE ROCKIES
 
As part of U.S. Highway 40, Colfax Avenue was initially the main highway through the Denver metro area on the way to the Rocky Mountains. After traveling 500 miles of prairie, weary travelers were greeted by a veritable oasis on the eastern plains of Aurora, Colorado. Motels on Colfax were clean, well-maintained, family friendly and did a booming business in the 1940's and 50's, all up until I-70 was built and took the tourist traffic. Here is a complete list of all the motels I could find, past or present, on the Longest Commercial Street in the U.S.A. Let's go for a drive!
