Pagosa To Do List – Summer 2021

My heart belongs to Pagosa Springs. It has for a long time. Lots of my family and friends have been here and continue to come back. As summer approaches and people are being vaccinated, I expect to see many of them. While you can find a lot of info about restaurants, activities and hot springs at Visit Pagosa, I’m giving my recommendations below.
