Rafting and Dining
Not only THE place to book a Browns Canyon Raft trip, but also an amazing place to sit at a riverside beach and enjoy fresh Marg's, cold beer and fish tacos. Such a hidden roadside gem. Also great for live music in the summer. And if you're not a hardcore rafter, check out their Milk Run family friendly float trip from Johnson Village right to their riverside bar / outfitter HQ.

Hot Springs
This place rocks! There's a spa, restaurant, soak pools, waterslide pool and creek to enjoy no matter your crew or appetite. Situated beneath the chalk cliffs, of all the hot springs in CO, this is a true gem.

Neighborhoods
Salida has it all. Great dining, shopping, trails, and a white water park right in the middle of town. Do yourself a favor and rent a duckie and float from stone bridge into downtown. Level 1-2.5 rapids depending on water flow. Simply gorgeous and low risk if you have some paddling experience.
