Come, Live Alamosa

To explore, to experience, to be alive! We invite you to live Alamosa. Let us guide you along trails less traveled in the San Luis Valley, show you where to get the the best bowl of green chili, and even share our sacred fishing spots on the magnificent Rio Grande.

Play on the beach at Great Sand Dunes National Park, hike to Zapata Falls, or spend a relaxing day aboard the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad. Whichever adventure you choose will become a lasting memory.

Live our rich history and experience the native culture with a visit to the Luther Bean MuseumFt. Garland, or take a walking tour of historical downtown Alamosa. Drive along the Los Caminos Antiguos Scenic Byway for panoramic views of the vast San Luis Valley from scenic vistas.

It's nearly impossible to convey the beauty of Alamosa in words. So, we invite you to come, see with your own eyes, and experience what it truly means to Live Alamosa.
