Red River is a picturesque small town with a mile-long main street lined with shops, restaurants, motels, a brewery and more.
The tiny hamlet — at an elevation of 8,750 feet — offers cool mountain air, bright blue skies and plenty of access to the great outdoors.
Though the town began as a gold, silver and copper mining outpost, visitors today can score a different kind of treasure — epic outdoor adventure. Vacationers can ride off road vehicles, hike, fish, ride horseback, zip line or go tubing in one of the most beautiful places on earth — the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Red River also hosts a dizzying number of annual events, including a Memorial Day motorcycle rally, an arts & wine festival, a Fourth of July parade, a Bluegrass and BBQ festival and a full-blown Oktoberfest celebration.
