Salida got its name from the Spanish word for “exit,” denoting its location at the end of the Arkansas River Canyon. While it may not be as famous as other Colorado cities such as Denver and Aspen, it has its own charm. Its downtown area is the largest historical district in the state, with many of its buildings showcasing their original architecture from the time Salida served as one of the stops of Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. It has a thriving art community, with local galleries featuring works of painters, sculptors, potters, and even jewelers. It also has a number of natural attractions, including three hot springs and several nature trails. Of course, the Arkansas River plays a central role in the town’s development and tourism. Check out the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Salida, Colorado.
