By: Buena Vista & Salida
Updated: June 30, 2022

Buena Vista is a family-friendly mountain town on the Arkansas River with year-round outdoor adventure opportunities. The area is also home to one of the state's newest national monuments, Browns Canyon National Monument, and is one of the nation's most popular locales for whitewater rafting.

Hit a whitewater park, climb a fourteener, go fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding or dog sledding — and of course, don't miss the hot springs to relax at the end of the day.
