Tucked away in the La Cuchara Valley below the twin Spanish Peaks, the quaint art town of La Veta may be one of the last, best undiscovered spots in Colorado. The marriage of scenic beauty, rich history and a charming town center with shopping, galleries and dining make it easy to see how this area became a haven for artists over the years. Located 100 miles from downtown Colorado Springs and 180 miles from Denver, your opportunity to experience the serene beauty of La Veta is just a short drive away!
La Veta’s fantastic mix of outdoor recreation, shopping and entertainment offers excitement for everyone, no matter what your interests. The San Isabel National Forest surrounds the Cuchara Valley making this an ideal location for nature lovers. Spanning over one million acres, the National Forest provides spectacular opportunities for hiking, biking and camping.
