    Telluride’s historic downtown is a picture-perfect hub for boutique shopping, gourmet cuisine and lively bars. Take a walk down Colorado Avenue and check out the boutique shopping and buzzing art galleries.

    Telluride is a combination of the old and the new. Old town Telluride is a wonderful trip back to the old west; lots of character and charm. The ‘new’ Telluride is just over the mountain at Mountain Village where you’ll find superb lodgings available in hotels or private homes, magnificent golf, an array of shopping and dining and whether it’s winter or summer, it’s a hive of activity every evening.

    Celebrated for its culture, heritage and spectacular scenic beauty, Telluride, Colorado, is recognized for its unrivaled recreational opportunities.

    In the winter, world-class Telluride Ski Resort boasts powder-filled bowls in which to ski, snowboard and enjoy awe-inspiring mountain views.

    Come summer, the resort transforms into a North American icon of music and events—home to world-famous festivals, including the Mountainfilm in Telluride, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Telluride Jazz Celebration and Telluride Film Festival.

    In addition to the summer festival calendar, , hiking, biking, flyfishing, rafting, Jeeping and other outdoor activities are popular. A free gondola provides easy year-round travel in the area.

    Not far from Telluride is the famous Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad – it’s a spectacular day trip for the whole family.

    • Top Tip 1

      Even if you're not a skier, take a gondola ride to the top of Beaver Creek Mountain at any time of year. The views will take your breath away.

    • Top Tip 2

      Take the Durango - Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, but just do it one way (and take the motorcoach back the other way). The train journey takes around four hours and the coach journey back is just over an hour.

    • Top Tip 3

      Another one for train buffs is the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad which travels between Antonito in southern Colorado and Chama in northern New Mexico.

    • Top Tip 4

      Visit the Four Corners, where you can have a foot and hand in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona - all at the same time.

    • Top Tip 5

      If you're in western Colorado make sure you visit Black Canyon at the Gunnison National Monument. It’s a hidden gem and well worth a visit.

    • Top Tip 6

      Looking for somewhere to have lunch in Denver? Check out Marlowe's Restaurant; it’s a deservedly popular spot with the locals for both lunch and dinner.

    • Top Tip 7

      Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, just 15 miles west of Denver, is a world famous outdoor venue, with excellent hiking and biking trails as well as the only naturally-occurring, acoustically-perfect amphitheatre in the world.

    • Top Tip 8

      Visit Colorado National Monument near Grand Junction, voted one of the ten best places for solitude in the US. Include the 23-mile scenic Rim Rock Drive in your itinerary. If you're going to hike in the area, be aware that midges can be a nuisance from mid May to mid July, so take some repellent.
