If you are looking at Trinidad... - 11/2/2014

check it out and move here. I've lived all over this country so I know best. Look for the economy to grow very fast here and you better buy quick. Great architecture in town. There is a food shortage but that should change quick when the economy recovers. I've enjoyed it so far-I love the sun, altitude and I wish I moved here 20 years ago. I like to be free and I feel freer here.

Trinidad Colorado in a nutshell - 7/23/2013

Trinidad is a small town that has a few nice features like the wonderful blues fest and a couple of nice Art galleries. This town has minimal to no economic development and the town over all is not well maintained. There are very few good eateries, no movie theaters and shopping with the exception of a walmart or over priced shops in the downtown district. The area has little room to achieve any type of financial gain as there are very few jobs or opportunities. With the exception of a few historic homes that have been maintained and restored beautifully, the majority appear runned down and in obvious need of updating to the 21st century. If you like stepping back in time of an old desert town with inflated prices and little to do, Trinidad is a wonderful choice.

Trinidad Colorado in a nut shell - 7/23/2013

I find Trinidad colorado to be an economically challenged area with very little growth. The blues fest is great but the overall area is very old and bordering delapetated. There are very few jobs and very little opportunity for advancement. Homes in Trinidad and surrounding area are overpriced and outdated mostly. On a positive note , there are some cool historic homes that have been well maintained and are beautiful. The cost of living is higher than most surrounding areas with very few choices of eateries, movie theaters and overall entertainment. Nice place to drive through to a different destination. Weather is great in the fall but terribly desert like hot in summer and stays very cold through spring. If you like living back in time with inflated pricing and housing, Trinidad is for you.

Trinidad Colorado. - 7/23/2013

Trinidad is a depressed little town with backward people. The scenery is very dry and old and drab. Their are no jobs, good eateries or modern updated homes. Basically an old ghost town! Why the rave here is beyond me. Go see for yourself! I am from this town and can't believe I stayed as long as I did. It's also very expensive! On a positive note, it's got a decent blues festival and a couple cool antique stores.

Go see for yourself! I am from this town and can't believe I stayed as long as I did. The weather is very hot in summer and cold and windy the rest of the year.

climate all year round - 2/26/2013

Trinidad has about 9,000 residents and is the county seat of the very large and quite empty Las Animas County. The winters have many sunny days and few are overcast in the year. Usually there is little snow or rain, and this area east of the Rockies is rather dry, about with 15.5" of precipitation. Visibility tends to be unlimited, the skies are some of the bluest you have ever seen. Snow comes more in February, March, and April. It can arrive in a one-foot dump, or as light flakes in 4" levels, but usually melts off during the day or the second day. If the cloudy days and nights in the Midwest are hard on your spirit, this may be the place for you.

Trinidad is a wonderful place to live! - 8/18/2009

We moved to Trinidad about 2 years ago and having lived in the mountains about 45 minutes west of town for many years we weren't sure we'd like being in "the city." Our worries are over -- it's nice to tap into the many things that are happening in Trinidad, from the yearly BluesFest to the frequent art shows at the Mitchell Museum, to the Farmer's Market at beautiful Cimino Park along the Riverwalk. It's not surprising to learn that the job market is tough here -- as it is across the nation now. Trinidad is a great place to live. Come for a visit .... and stay.

air health - 2/19/2009

Trinidad Colorado has some of the best air in the US - all you have to do is come here and breathe and you can tell it, seeing it on paper in your comparisons makes it real So many of us have said you can tell the difference here for years.

yea..t-dad - 12/18/2007

I,myself, do not care for Trinidad because of the lack of things to do,it's run down appearance, and the surrounding area of open plains. I have never cared much for the landscape of southern Colorado, but others may like the wide open spaces,canyons,mesas, and mountains that surround the area. 80 miles from Pueblo and about 140 from Denver.Couple of good things...Trinidaddio Blues Festival,If you're a golfer they just opened a golf course (cougar canyon)....mmm that was a couple I guess.

Rising Cost of Housing - 1/8/2007

My husband and I have been looking to purchase a home for the past couple of years in the Trinidad, Colorado area. It seems as though the cost of housing is skyrocketing in this area. Rent averages around $800 a month and it is quite difficult to find a home to purchase under $150,000. Unfortunately, the wages in this area are not comparable to the cost of housing unless you are employed by one of the companies that work in the gas drilling field. This is quite unfortunate as Trinidad is a nice place to live, if you can afford it.
