Where in Colorado Should You Invest in a Second Home?

Published Dec 15, 2022 

It's easy to see why Colorado is such a popular year-round tourist destination. The Centennial State is a great place for people who love the outdoors because it has so many parks and recreational areas where you can explore nature and get your blood pumping. It's not to mention the 26 picturesque byways that can turn every commute into a memorable outing.

There's plenty of excitement in store for phrazle slow travelers, too: Colorado is home to hundreds of breweries, more than 150 wineries, and dozens of small distilleries. This explains why the state's second-home market is thriving.

The consumer population as a whole has undergone a mental and behavioral transformation. Malia Cox Nobrega, a real estate broker at LIV Sotheby's International Realty, told Travel + Leisure in an email that the influx of vacation home and second homeowners in the Vail Valley and Colorado in general can be attributed to the fact that "people want to spend more time living where they want to be rather than where they work."

Do you want to own a piece of paradise in Colorado? Here are the top seven locations in Colorado for a second home. Vail is the more well-known of the two popular ski resorts in the Vail Valley, and for good reason: it has world-class ski runs and facilities, five-star lodging, upscale cuisine, and a thriving cultural life. Golf courses, fly fishing, and hiking trails all draw summer tourists to Vail Valley. Vail, Colorado, may be a little town, but the nearby Eagle County Airport makes it accessible from anywhere in the United States.
