By: Buena Vista & Salida
Updated: June 2, 2022

Salida is a little gem of Colorado. Centrally located in the state, it lies on the banks of the Arkansas River, surrounded by peaks towering more than 14,000 feet in elevation. The town is known for its skiing and snowboarding at Monarch Mountain, snowmobiling, hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, fishing, camping, horseback riding and golf — and that's just scratching the surface of things to do.
