Buena Vista & Salida, Colorado
After a day of action on the slopes, river or trails, the fun heads into the evening and night. Start with a casual dinner at any of a variety of restaurants. Choices include traditional steaks on to sushi, from Mexican to Chinese to Italian, from light fare soup and salad to full four- and five-course dinners to satisfy every appetite. Summer evenings at town parks provide a wealth of entertainment from band performances to full concerts at the SteamPlant in Salida or school auditoriums.
Night spots take over for late evening entertainment, often with weekend bands or entertainers. Of course, there’s always time for sharing the day’s adventures over a locally-crafted brew with friends. Those interested in the latest sports will find screens large and small tuned to the game, college or pro, at many establishments.
Healthy, organic, and local aren’t just trendy buzz words; they define our whole food culture and lifestyle. Foodies delight in Salida and Buena Vista’s full-plate of independently-owned restaurants, coffee shops, cafes, bars and taverns. Intrepid entrepreneurs put their signature style into every delicious culinary experience. Scenery is served too, with panoramic mountain views and river serenades. Eat it up.
