The Pagosa Springs Visitor Center is here to help you get the most out of your Pagosa Springs vacation.

You will find information on lodging, restaurants, area activities and a genuinely local perspective on all things Pagosa Springs at the Visitor Center.

Located along the banks of the San Juan River just across the Hot Springs Boulevard bridge in downtown Pagosa Springs, the Visitor Center features picnic tables along the river, free Wi-Fi, free area maps and a wealth of area information.

A team of fantastic staff and volunteers are available daily to assist you in making the most of your visit. During the summer, the Visitor Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For after-hours information, multiple brochures are available on the front porch and near the back door.

Visitor Center staff and volunteers regularly tour area businesses in Pagosa Springs to ensure they know all of the latest news and happenings to share with inquiring visitors.

When vacationing at 7,100 feet above sea level, staying hydrated is essential. Free, reusable water bottles are available at the Visitor Center in addition to a filtered water fill-station, ensuring no one leaves with an empty bottle.

While parents gather information about Pagosa Springs, children can be entertained in the Visitor Center play corner with puzzles, games, coloring books and more. You can also pick up a Kid’s Activity Book from a volunteer, with free crayons. Children who complete the activity book during their stay can redeem it for a fun and unique Pagosa Springs Bear.

The Visitor Center also runs a “bike planter” scavenger hunt set to begin in early June. Local businesses host flower planters that look like old bicycles. Follow the map, write down the letters, unscramble the clue to complete the phrase, and spin the wheel for a chance at several awesome prizes.

You can reach the Visitor Center by calling (970) 585-1200 or (800) 252-2204. To learn more about Pagosa Springs, visit www.visitpagosasprings.com.
