Best Places to Buy a Vacation Home in Colorado

Whether you’re considering the purchase of a vacation home for yourself or as a

rental property, the location you purchase in matters almost more than the look

of the home. For vacation rentals, you want to focus on places with high tourism

and that have plenty of things to do.

4 Best Places to Buy a Vacation Home

1. Colorado Springs. Purchase a vacation home with the snow-capped

mountains of Pikes Peak as a backdrop. It won’t come cheaply, but

Colorado Springs is a gorgeous area with seven regional parks and many

trails. Colorado Springs has over 55 attractions and activities, so you’ll

never get bored.

2. Breckenridge. This area is perfect for all-year-round activities. In the

winter, Breckenridge hosts an International Snow Sculpture Championship

along with winter sports. In the summer, it hosts the National Repertory

Orchestra along with a host of fun summer activities, including mountain

biking, hiking, and fly fishing.

3. Steamboat Springs. If you’re a lover of outdoor sports, then Steamboat

Springs is your vacation destination. This area offers excellent skiing

opportunities and has been the location of world-class competitions. It’s

also next to the Yampa River for water sports like fishing, rafting, and


4. Durango. If you’re looking for something a bit different, buying a vacation

home in Durango keeps you close to the action, but far enough away to

enjoy quiet time, too. Durango’s historic district is home to boutiques,

restaurants, galleries, and more. There is also the Durango & Silverton

Narrow Gauge Railroad, the Animas River Valley, and the Purgatory


A vacation home is your reprieve from your busy life, so when it comes to

selecting one, keep your vacationing style in mind! If you love site-seeing and

being busy, then Breckenridge and Colorado Springs are going to be great places

to vacation. On the other hand, if you favor more low-key vacations, Steamboat

Springs and Durango will be your best bet.
