The Scene:
In late Spring, Summer, and Early Fall, Creede is home to a variety of fine or fun eating establishments, numerous cultural events like the National Small Print Show, the Creede Sculpture Show, and a varied selection of special events like the Balloon Festival and several athletic events. In late Fall and Winter, hunting, snow mobiling, and cross country skiing dominate the scene.

The Elevation:
Creede, Colorado is located in the heart of the southern Rocky Mountains, at an elevation of 8800 feet (2708 meters). Visitors from areas that are much lower in elevation should allow time for their bodies to adapt by planning a gradual trip, with a few days spent at successively higher elevations.
