San Luis Valley

Great Sand Dunes National ParkEnjoy the beautiful scenery and tall mountain peaks that surround Alamosa.  With a land area of close to 8,200 square miles, the San Luis Valley is larger than the land mass of Rhode Island, Delaware and Connecticut combined. This high elevation Valley boasts claim to the title of largest alpine valley in North America.

The Valley is home to the tallest dunes in North America at the Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve. It lies in the shadows of the towering Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Mt. Blanca, the fourth tallest peak in Colorado. Within the Valley’s watershed, high in the San Juan Mountains, snow melt and rain give birth to the mighty Rio Grande, second longest river in our nation.

Downtown AlamosaIn spite of its size, the Valley never feels crowded. With a population density of about six people per square mile, there is plenty of open space. However, living in the Valley doesn’t require one to give up all the amenities of big city life. Alamosa, the Valley’s largest city, serves at the Valley’s regional hub.
