Colorado Eats: The Best Places to Visit in Buena Vista

Bird's Eye View of a VillageSo you have a few days or the weekend off, and you’re planning on going somewhere. Buena Vista in Colorado is a perfect destination. Being greeted by the snow-capped mountains as you drive by is already a bonus, but that is not all that this town has to offer to the weekend warrior or the discerning mainland tourist.

The food

Restaurants in Buena Vista, CO should definitely be on your list of places to visit:

  • There are many restaurants in town that can cater to your Asian food hankerings.
  • Here, you will not also miss out on good old’ local fare like burgers and burritos.
  • If you are looking to paint the town red at night, there are decent breweries here to gulp down a pint or enjoy some locally brewed drinks. It isn’t a mountain town for nothing.
  • This is also why dairy products like cheese and goat’s milk are available in town.

The fun

Of course, you are going to want to do some activities once you are full. The town is far from dull, and there are quite a few things to do:

  • Named the “whitewater capital of Colorado,” you can go rafting in any of the available rafting companies in town. You can also try kayaking.
  • There are also geothermal, gravity-fed mineral spas available in town.
  • Feeling a little sporty? You can rent a mountain bike and challenge the Gentleman’s Loop, which is a trail from downtown that crosses a river.

These are only a few of the activities you can check out. The real thrill lies in doing them for yourself when you are actually in town.
