Salida is known as the "Heart of the Rockies," due to its position in the famous Colorado mountains of the same name. While the town began as an important stop on the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad, it's best known today for its profusion of outdoor activities, which are enjoyable year-round due to the region's unusually mild climate. Book one of the Salida hotels and see it all for yourself!
Colorado Springs Airport is just over 100 miles east of Salida. Once you jump off your flight, you can rent a car from one of the on-site agencies. There are no public transportation options, but private companies do offer bus transportation between Colorado Springs and Salida. If you choose to travel by bus, you can reserve one of the Salida rental cars to help you get around the area once you arrive. After you settle into one of the Salida motels, head over to the Monarch Scenic Tram, which can be ridden to the top of the Continental Divide for scenic views of the Rockies from 12,012 feet. Later, take a run down the Arkansas River on a whitewater rafting expedition, and follow it up with a relaxing soak in the Salida Hot Springs. In the evening, stroll historic downtown Salida to do a little shopping or grab a bite to eat. Want to pair your outdoor adventures with a trip to the state capital?
