Easy Access to Town and County Activities

In addition to these local activities, the Town of La Veta has a lot to offer within just a few blocks of our home. The Town is installing a new sidewalk for our residents, and crosswalks are planned on Main Street to ensure safe access to shops and other amenities.

Here are some of the things residents can access, many of which are within a few blocks of our residence:

Shopping: Go grocery shopping at Charlie’s Market for special items, or visiting one of the many arts and crafts stores


Libraries and Learning: The award-winning La Veta library is less than a five-minute walk away; books, movies, magazines are available, and the library offers a wide-range of learning sessions.

Arts and Culture: Visit the SPACE art gallery, the Parkside Gallery and Cafe, or one of the other art galleries in town. Attend a play at the Francisco Players Community Center.  Attend Celtic Fest in September or musical events by visiting performers just across the street at the La Veta Mercantile.

Personal Care and Fitness: Two Peaks Fitness is around the corner. Attend special classes on Yoga in the Community Center.

Fine and Casual Dining: For casual experiences, visit the Deerpint Wine Bar or Coffee Shop across the street. Legends on Main, Mission Deli Mesa,  the Lokal Burger, Fat Wellers BBQ, and the Mountain Merman Brewery are within a few blocks.  Alys’ Restaurant offers fine dining, casually, a short distance away.

Churches and Spiritual Support: We can connect individuals to communities of faith of their choice. Catholic, Baptist, and Methodist churches are available in La Veta, and there are other options in Walsenburg.  Quaker meetings are accessible locally, and there is an active Jewish community in the County.
