5280: First Timer's Guide to Telluride
This statement is not based on scientific research, but Telluride just might be Colorado’s favorite getaway town. I say this because every time I play the “if you could take one trip in Colorado this year, where would it be?” game, Telluride always wins the popularity contest. Given that, you might think that this mountain town would be overrun with tourists. Quite the contrary: Telluride, an old mining town nestled in a box canyon, rarely seems overcrowded. That’s in impressive feat given the near-constant stream of summer festivals (Telluride Bluegrass, Telluride Film Festival, andTelluride Blues and Brews Festival, to name a few). It should be no surprise then, that Telluride made our list of the best winter-hotspots-turned-summer-destinations in this month’s “Colorado’s Other High Season.” We couldn’t fit all of our favorite places in the print issue, so here’s more to love about Colorado’s unofficial favorite destination, especially for first-time visitors.
