Leadville, Colorado - Mountain Habitat Community Profile
I'd like to think of Leadville as a diamond in the rough. No fancy ski area amenities are needed for the hardy bunch that call Leadville home. However, many updates and upgrades are happening that add to the ongoing outdoor recreation boom that has the replaced the gold boom days of yesteryear. A colorful downtown is just one section of town and residences are to be found stretched out along the highway and further off roads that branch out towards the mountains.
What Life is Like in Leadville
Victorian-era architecture and the old Tabor Opera house remind locals and visitors of Leadville's history, while providing mountain culture like no other. Unique events include the Leadville 100 (a hundred mile foot race and mountain biking race), Burro Racing and Ski Joring during the winter. Dramatic mountain views can be found right from town and if you're looking for an affordable option to create a lifestyle business, this is a great opportunity.
