The heart of Dillon is found overlooking the lake, with a central location and spectacular views. The town is undergoing some changes and redevelopment which will add density, critical mass and newer buildings in the core area. While Dillon’s location on the lake and variety of restaurants and activities makes it desirable year-round, it is in the summer that the town really shines. Dillon real estate for sale offers a wide range of choices including the older town area near the lake which also includes some newer developments, plus the more affordable areas of Dillon Valley and Summit Cove.
