A small grove of orange- and yellow-leafed aspens is in the foreground, along with a tall pine tree beside them. Between the grove and in the distance are the sun-kissed Sand Dunes in Colorado. Behind them still is a small portion of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains underneath a heavily cloudy sky.

Positioned in the heart of the San Luis Valley, the majestic landscapes surrounding Alamosa are prime for outdoor adventure — from exploring Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve to casting a line in the Rio Grande River.

Stroll, hike or bike through open spaces and wildlife refuges. Or, dig deep into the area's rich history at the San Luis Valley Museum and take a walking tour of historic downtown Alamosa.

It's nearly impossible to convey the beauty of Alamosa in words, so you're invited to come see with your own eyes, and experience what it truly means to get rooted in Alamosa.
