As a town of many accolades, Trinidad has been named one of the 10 Most Beautiful Towns in Colorado and one of Colorado's Local Fan Favorites of 2015 by The Culture Trip, one of the 10 Best Colorado Towns to Buy a House by Westword, a Top Ten True Western Town by True West Magazine, and a state designated Creative District by the State of Colorado.
Trinidad's wealth of historic victorian architecture creates a unique ambience for the town's amenities. Art treks with galleries showcasing works both traditional and surprising, outstanding museums, cozy boutiques, sidewalk cafes, year-round theatre, and special annual events such as the wildly creative drivable vehicular art invasion of ArtoCade in September draw participants and spectators from across the country. The annual A.R. Mitchell Museum Quick Draw art celebration gives artists one hour to paint a masterpiece of a live model for auction. Other popular Trinidad events include the A.R. Mitchell Museum Black & White Western Ball, theTrinidiefest Independent Film Festival, Rodeos, and more!
Trinidad's parks and beautiful riverwalk offer fountain romping, a world-class skateboard park, swimming, bocce ball, and trout fishing. Extending Trinidad's allure for lovers of nature and history is Trinidad Lake State Park, just minutes from the downtown National Historic District. Visitors use Trinidad as their base camp for exploring the Scenic Highway of Legends lake country with its spectacular scenery and historic and prehistoric sites.
