"A quiet little town with great views"

Saguache is a small little town in southern Colorado, just southeast of Canon City. Due to it's proximity to the mountains, there are some lovely views from Saguache. Just under 500 people call this home with the majority of them (59%) being white, followed by Hispanic (37%). The median home price is $104,120 while the median household income is $29,625. Both of these numbers are below the state of Colorado averages. The most common industry here is retail.

Saguache is located about an hour's drive north of Alamosa, and is close to both the Rio Grande National Forest and the Great Sand Dunes National Preserve.

This little town has several antique malls, a lumber yard, and a few locally owned restaurants. For big shopping or more dining options, residents do need to travel a bit. The schools are part of Moffat County and have a slightly below rating when it comes to state testing standards.
