You have to see the beauty of Buena Vista to believe it: everyone who comes to this town falls in love with it. From rafting, to hiking, scenic drives, off-roading, zipling, fishing, horseback riding, hot springs, alpine lake, to shopping, breweries and art, Buena Vista (and nearby Salida) boast ton's to do.
