Leadville and Twin Lakes also have very undervalued Homes and Land For Sale. Each county is a great property investment.

Buena Vista was established approximately 1864, being different from the wilderness background that some of the towns have that are close by. The name means beautiful view, which suggests peacefulness. The town began in 1879 by silver miners.

Buena Vista was a prominent supply area and was located near the intersection of 3 old time railroads which are the Denver/Rio Grande, Colorado Midland and Colorado Southern. Salida is the rival town to the south. Buena Vista was named the county seat of Chaffee in 1880.

Buena Vista is surrounded by mountains, which affect the climate. It is similar to Arizona with 10 to 12 inches of rainfall yearly. There is much precipitation in the surrounding elevated peaks and the valley has adequate water to use for the prolific season.

The semi-arid climate causes very low humidity with summer highs averaging 78-80 degrees and winter highs around 45-55 degrees, dropping down into the teens for the lows. Nicknamed the "Banana Belt of the Rockies" inhabitants are able to recreate throughout the year.

The area has a variety of shopping from practical items as well as arts and crafts. Buena Vista has so much to offer, with its new theatre and arts facility in Salida, and a wonderful library.

You can find Buena Vista, Colorado in the center of the outdoor activities Mecca. Buena Vista is conveniently located near Monarch Ski Resort, and a short drive from several of the larger ski resorts in Colorado. Buena Vista is among the main portals to recreation in the San Isabel National Forest boasting 1,109,782 acres and the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area spreading out for 148 miles.

When the temperatures become colder the colors become vibrant; the aspens in the fall are great. This location is also popular for big game hunting. When the snow falls the beginning of the ski season is when the snow falls. Only moments from Buena Vista, Monarch Ski area can't be far behind.
