Sterling also boasts the region’s largest display of bronze artwork in northeastern Colorado. With many talented artists and a commitment to community art, Logan County is colored by numerous murals in both Sterling and Merino and new metal art creations are popping up in several parks and other public places.

Sterling has a rich past to explore in the historic downtown are, as well as at the Overland Trail Museum, which records the greatest migration of people our country has ever experienced.

Where to Eat

A gigantic scoop of hard ice cream is a favorite at the charming Simkins Parlour and the Old Town Bistro’s chef, Ben Haines, was named the winner of the Hell's Kitchen "Best Steak in America" contest. Stop at the new Parts & Labor Brewery for a quick bite and a brew made with locally grown wheat.
