Buena Vista

Explore Buena Vista, Colorado

Buena Vista is a mix of a quiet mountain community and a vital tourist town known for its friendly people bound together by a love of the outdoors, clean-air and small-town living.

Located in central Colorado on the Arkansas River, rafting and kayaking are two exciting activities that draw people to the area. The whitewater park at the end of East Main provides great family fun. Cross the footbridge in the park and you can mountain bike or hike right from town. Like to fish? Recently this part of the river has been designated a Gold Medal fishing area.

Over ten 14,000′ mountains within 30 minutes provide wonderful, scenic hiking and mountain bike trails. Hot springs are open all year.

Quaint shops, galleries, museums, a variety of restaurants, historic re-enactments, concerts in the park, farmer’s markets, and a full calendar of events make Buena Vista a fun place to vacation.
