In the heart of the San Juan Mountains, far from the noise and bustle of the city, a small town is quietly conducting life at a slower pace. Surrounded by impressive mountain peaks and rolling pine-covered hills, it's a town in which people come to relax. They ski the best snow in Colorado, hike the most beautiful trails, and spend the evening relaxing in the "healing waters" of one of the world's largest mineral springs.
Visitors, captivated by the natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere, come back year after year, and when they can, they stay forever. It's a place where neighbors become friends, and even strangers are friendly. All the good things in life have come together to create a mountain paradise in Pagosa Springs - the Colorado you've always dreamed of.
You'll find the friendly people and sunny skies of Pagosa about an hour east of Durango, and three hours drive from Santa Fe, New Mexico. Known for its 27-hole championship golf course, Wolf Creek Ski Area (with the "most snow in Colorado"), close proximity to noted archaeological sites, and of course, the Great Pagosa Hot Springs, Pagosa Springs is a welcoming community of some of the most friendly people you could hope to meet.
Pagosans attend festivals, parades, and other community and family events, and the "riverwalk" along the San Juan River provides an inviting place to stroll. Local shops offer an assortment of goods for locals and tourists, all at reasonable prices. Homes are reasonably priced, and there are many ready to occupy today. Neighborhoods still have "block parties" and picnics, and fishing is plentiful in the scattering of glittering lakes and streams.
Wherever you currently hang your hat, you'll love the feeling of "home" that you find in Pagosa Springs. We invite you to discover the best-kept secret in the western United States - Pagosa Country.
