San Luis Care Center is situated in scenic Alamosa, Colo., the commercial center of the San Luis Valley. Alamosa features many tourist attractions and festivals, including celebrations of local art. For a day trip, we suggest:
- The official City of Alamosa website offers the history of Alamosa, along with general information about the city and area.
- The Alamosa Convention and Visitors Bureau provides tourist and visitor information, along with community information and event calendars.
- The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve features the tallest dunes in North America, just 35 miles northeast of Alamosa. The 30-acre dune field offers no trails, encouraging visitors to freely explore the natural system of the park, from forests to tundra, creek to cottonwood groves.
- SummerFest on the Rio is an eclectic arts and crafts festival held along the Rio Grande in Cole Park. Featuring concerts, food and vendors, the weekend festival has something for everyone.
