Buena Vista, Colorado


Buena Vista’s innovative foodie scene is expanding. New eateries add flavor to an area already rich with long-time favorites. Numerous independently-owned restaurants range from sushi to steak to sandwiches. Imaginative cuisine is complemented by an award-winning distillery and lively bars. The South Main neighborhood offers coffee and sweets shops, a brewery and grill and a new hotel with a full-service, full-scenery restaurant.

Entrepreneurs, outdoor lovers and long-time residents find Buena Vista is a special place in which to live. While high in the mountains of Colorado, the climate here is often milder than many might expect. The area is popular with retirees as well as a growing number of single people and young families who are attracted to small-town living. As the population grows, real estate values have maintained an upward trend through recent years.

Travel to Colorado’s largest cities from Buena Vista is direct and on well-established highways. This central location is also close to getaways to Durango, Taos, Santa Fe and a day’s drive to Sedona.
