Despite our small, year-round population (around 700), we have the largest percentage of National Forest land within any other county in Colorado. That means you’ll have lots of opportunities to find adventure in big, wide-open wilderness.
Get some artistic inspiration at Creede Repertory Theatre or in any one of our number of beautiful art galleries. Wander around town and you're sure to find live music streaming out the doors of local watering holes.
If you have a fondness for the past, plan a day to investigate our heritage with a walking tour at the Creede Historical Museum, a guided tour at the Underground Mining Museum and a drive along the scenic Bachelor Loop. But be warned, you might develop a bit of our Old West attitude.
Our small community also means big family get-togethers. Creede hosts many events and festivals throughout the year, all of which are family-friendly!
Creede’s uninhibited wilderness, unexpected entertainment, inspired art community, and well-preserved heritage are what brings families back to visit us, year after year. In fact, many have been visiting Creede for generations!
Take a chance and seek out “the road less traveled.” Creede will be your best adventure yet!
