Salida Walking Tours
Salida is a charming walkable town – a pleasure to explore. Downtown is vibrant with boutique shops, art galleries, and wonderful independently-owned restaurants. So it takes some imagination to envision it as a mostly lawless Wild West railroad town with dirt roads and more vice than nice. But that’s where the new historic Salida Walking Tours comes in. The Salida Walking Tours, owned and operated by Steve Chapman, fills the heritage niche with a pedestrian “show and tell” like no other. A master storyteller, Chapman resurrects Salida’s pre 1900s history in an engaging, entertaining fashion. The tours reveal what you didn’t know you didn’t know about the origins of Colorado's Largest National Historic District. Get Your Free Visitor Guide: https://www.colorfulcolorado.com/visitors-guide/
