Found in Dolores County, Rico has become a popular tourist destination in Southwest Colorado not only for its past, but also for hiking, biking and fishing opportunities. The downtown area has historic buildings to admire and some are still standing from the mining days of the 1880s. For dining, there are a few local restaurants in town and live music in the evening.
