Things To Do In / Near La Veta:.......... DOWNTOWN LA VETA.....This small, laid-back town at the base of the majestic Spanish Peaks is located along the Scenic Highway of Legends, La Veta, the vein, served as a vital lifeline a century ago; the town was originally a busy trading center, supplying the nearby area with goods. It is now home to a diverse population of artists and ranchers. Nine buildings on the site of an adobe trading post make up the Fort Francisco Museum. In addition to a schoolhouse and re-created general store, the fort contains collections of furniture, clothing, tools and more. While in town, visit the Spanish Peaks Arts Council and other local galleries for exhibits of local artists' works. Enjoy dinner at the historic La Veta Inn in the heart of town.

(23 min., 16 mi.).............ASPEN VIEWING.....The beautiful aspen is the quintessential Colorado tree. In the summer, the aspen provide shade for the state flower, the columbine; and when fall foliage comes on the scene, Coloradans rejoice as the aspens’’ quaking leaves turn their vibrant shade of gold.

Nestled in the shadow of the Spanish Peaks, this park offers a gentle climate, 103 campsites, fishing, water-skiing, golf, hiking and great views of the nearby mountain ranges. Lathrop offers two distinctive fishing and boating opportunities. Marin Lake is a great fishing lake which can also be enjoyed by boating enthusiasts throughout the summer. Horseshoe Lake is a no wake lake which provides ample fishing opportunity and also a beautiful serene experience for kayakers. (31 min., 24 mi.).............RIO GRAND SCENIC RAILROAD ...... Originally, these workaday trains brought supplies to inaccessible mining settlements. Today, three routes run along the edge of the San Isabel National Forest and take riders past historic places still virtually inaccessible any other way. In the warmer months, riders can often see bears along the route to La Veta. Start and End Points are 1) La Veta to Alamosa, and 2) Alamos/Antonito or Alamosa to Monte Vista. (26 min., 14 mi.)...........GRANDOTE PEAKS GOLF CLUB .....Experience Grandote Peaks Golf Club one of the finest and most affordable golf courses in Colorado.

GREAT SAND DUNES......The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve features the tallest dunes in North America and is just 35 miles northeast of Alamosa. It is an easy drive by U.S. 160. Against the backdrop of rugged 14,000-foot peaks in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the 30-square mile dune field, with no designated trails, invites you to explore freely. The natural system of the Park ranges from sand dunes to forests, from cottonwood groves to majestic mountain peaks and tundra. The highest elevation in the park is 13,604'. Play in intermittent Medano Creek, hike forest trails, or camp in the back country (1 hr. 8 min., 57 mi.)............... TAOS, NM.....Take a moment to explore Taos and discover the beauty, the culture, the people that make Taos and Northern New Mexico the Land of Enchantment.
