Make your home in Buena Vista, CO
The The Beauty of Buena Vista! Situated in the center of the state and at the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Buena Vista, Colorado is a picture perfect mountain town with magnificent views and thrilling outdoor activities. Aptly named, when translated from Spanish “Buena Vista” means “beautiful view”. And, given its surroundings, no other name would fit.
Buena Vista is in the Upper Arkansas Valley. With the Sawatch Mountain Range to the west and San Isabel National Forest to the east, this small town is privy to the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness area which holds some of Colorado’s highest peaks, known as “14ers”.
Settled in 1864, the water source provided by The Arkansas River has sustained Buena Vista’s agriculture based economy for over a century and a half. The wonderful residents and great location have kept it from turning into another “ghost town”, instead making it a hub for adventure and fun.
Today, Buena Vista is home to 2,700 residents who revel in its beauty and host thousands of visitors each year. With a thriving community made up of local shops, restaurants, and year-round events, this little town is not only a great place to visit, it’s a great place to live.
The town’s mountains, river, and wilderness area make it the perfect playground for adventurists and outdoor enthusiasts. The summer months allow for hiking, fishing, camping, rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, and so much more. Located within 90 minutes of eight major ski resorts, the winter months around Buena Vista offer alpine skiing, back country skiing, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, dog sledding, and snowmobiling as just some of great snow filled activities. To recharge your batteries after a long day shopping, touring, or playing outdoors, Buena Vista’s natural hot springs are a great place to spend time and relax.
Gorgeous, relaxed, and with so much to offer, Buena Vista is the perfect place to put down roots, or just get away for a while and experience Colorado at its finest.
