Even in Colorado settings just don't get much more spectacular than Creede, tucked into the San Juan Mountains. Because it's situated in a former volcanic caldera, it's surrounded by sheer cliffs that limit its physical growth.
That's great, because the small-town feel is what visitors love about this place.
Intact 1890’s storefronts invite you to shop, dine and stay at local lodgings. While you're there, be sure to explore the town's silver mining history via the Creede Historical Museum and the very special Underground Mining Museum. But it's not all about history here.
Every summer, the town hosts the Creede Repertory Festival, which lasts most of the season and features a mix of classical and new productions.
Because it's situated at the headwaters of the San Juan and Rio Grande rivers, there's plenty of good fishing here, as well as rafting, hiking and mountain biking. In winter, trade those for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding and ice-skating.
Be sure to explore at least one of the area's scenic byways, and take time to stop at the fascinating formations found at Wheeler Geologic Area, south of town. You'll be amazed.
