Chaffee County is home to Buena Vista, Salida & Poncha Springs Colorado. 14,000-foot peaks to the west and the Arkansas River to the east make these communities unique. Create your own adventure and enjoy all that the Colorado outdoors has to. After your adventures explore the many restaurants, art galleries and shopping opportunities in the historic downtowns. Be sure to soak in one of the many hot springs in the area where the natural, odorless hot springs waters bubble out of the ground at 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
