"Remote, but awesome"

Creede is located in the beautiful Rio Grande National Forest at 8,799 feet. This town has beauty all around it and mountain scenery everywhere you look. The ~403 residents have a multitude of outdoor activities to enjoy such as hiking, camping, hunting, and more. The town population is 99% white and most of the folks here work in construction followed by accommodation and food services. The median household income is $35,563 which is well below the state average, but the majority of homes here are cheaper as well. While there is an average median price of $193,612, this average takes into account mobile homes too, and as anyone who has driven through Creede can tell you, they are lined up along main street. Outside of town on acreage you can find multi million dollar custom homes with incredible views. Also in town you can spot a lot of cabins made of wood which add to the charm of this town. Along main street there are several restaurants and other businesses. This town in many ways is mountain living at it's finest. If I were looking to get away from it all, I would certainly consider living in Creede.
