Salida Life- Between the backroads of Central Colorado, it‘s easy to find yourself in Salida at the end of the day. Its central location provides easy access for nearly every outdoor pleasure imaginable. The area's most notable natural feature is the Arkansans River. The Arkansas River attracts both those looking for solitude and those looking for adventure. Along the weathered sidewalks, dogs and bikes wait outside the local markets and cantinas for their owners to return. In Salida, you need not go further than the corner of F Street and 1ST Street to see classic Americana that mixes one part Norman Rockwell, one part mountain town, and one part Austin, TX. It seems Salida’s eclectic mix of residents know how to live the good life.
