Both towns are located along the Arkansas River at elevations above 7,000 feet near the Continental Divide.
The Upper Arkansas Valley is an outdoor recreational dream. Since six of every seven acres is designated public lands, the Valley is the perfect location for hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, trail runners, rock climbers, boaters, and hunters.

Salida and Buena Vista's art communities have taken root in each city's downtown historic district. Visitors can watch as painters, potters, jewelers, and sculptors work in their studio galleries. The Aspen Concert Series, Alpine Orchestra, and different family-oriented festivals make both towns statewide tourist destinations.
