Salida Colorado Real Estate & Affordable Homes For Sale

Search Salida Real Estate 


The Arkansas River Valley, known as a kayaking mecca, boasts whitewater reaching over 100 miles and is ripe with opportunities for purchasing a home or Real Estate Investment. "Now This," boasts the highway signs, "is Colorado". Some very quaint homes are available for sale in the friendly community of Salida. People who are trying to escape from large cities like Boulder and Denver flock to this town, located at 7,038 feet. Salida is in the Upper Arkansas Valley, close to the middle of Colorado and other "very Colorado" Real Estate in Buena Vista and Leadville.

Also attracted are the throngs who come to raft the many different rapids of the Arkansas River. Salida, an unpretentious town, enjoys reasonably priced homes and real estate  with a busy arts scene, hundred-year-old homes and cottages for sale, two whitewater recreation areas and a hot-spring water municipal pool.

OUTDOORS: It is possible to bicycle (off pavement and on), fish, hike, and paddle almost all year long, due to the mild climate. The Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area which is over 148-miles long is interspersed with Class II–V drops, cuts through the historic district of Salida. Near the Sawatch Range, just northwest of town, there are 15 fourteeners, making up a total of a quarter of the state's, as well as hundreds of miles of trails dedicated to hiking. Close by, the 11,961 feet Monarch snowboard and Ski Area averages over 30 feet of fresh powder per year. Due to the banana-belt climate which is very moderate, locals can fish, bike, boat and hike almost all year long.

REAL ESTATE: A majority of properties lie in between two extremes: tiny, older downtown places that need work of around 1,400 square feet, priced at about $170,000, and freshly made to order houses on an acre (or three, or five) marked at $500,000 and higher.

HANGOUTS: The River Run Inn, built in 1892, provides a awesome room that has a library ladder that rolls, as well as the a Arkansas  with over a quarter mile of riverbank. The best restaurant in town is Laughing Ladies, which was aptly named during Salida's mining and railroad era for the prostitutes of the day (or maybe that should be night); but the most popular place to socialize is the Victoria or "the Vic", which is a bar that features live music and pool tables.
