San Luis Valley Experience

Nestled between the Sangre de Cristo and San Juan Mountains, the scenic San Luis Valley holds a rich history for South-Central Colorado. Travel to San Luis, “Colorado’s First Town,” established in 1851. Step inside the Valley’s beautifully preserved 19th Century churches. Explore agricultural legacies from La Vega, an expansive communal pasture land, to The People’s Ditch, a man-made canal that holds the earliest adjudicated water rights in the state.
