Join Us for Adventures in Our "Travel & Taste" Series

This fall and winter, Broadmoor's Travel and Taste series will take you on a voyage from the deserts of the southwestern US to the coral reefs of Bali and many more exciting places in between.

Each themed night offers a location-based buffet dinner and presentation of images from an exotic location. Through images and tastes, you might just feel as though you are actually "on location!"

On the Arizona-New Mexico border, just north of Mexico, lies the Chiricahua mountains, and the valley below. Due to the widely varied habitats, including a wide range of elevations, this area is a birding hotspot with 375 known species—including the elegant trogan and numerous hummingbirds.

Bhutan—Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon

The tiny country of Bhutan is nestled in the Himalayan foothills north of India and next to Nepal. Yaks, hornbills, monkeys, tree rhododendrons, and spectacular birds like blood and Kalij pheasant are found along the famous Linmethang Road at high elevations.
