Hot Springs & Cool Adventures: Buena Vista & Salida

Buena Vista and Salida are family-friendly mountain towns located on the Arkansas River with many restaurants, art galleries, breweries and distilleries. This year-round Colorado vacation destination is a playground for outdoor adventure. During the winter and spring enjoy skiing and snowmobiling.

Most famous for whitewater rafting and incredible views, Chaffee County is located along the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains, here the peaks often climb above 14,000 feet and the water in the natural hot springs bubbles out of the ground at 140 degrees.
