FORBES Travel Guide: Why You Should Visit Telluride Right Now
Telluride is a quiet hideaway, legendary for its old miner’s can-do spirit and for being the rare resort area with a down-home feel—as well as the majestic views of the jagged San Juan Mountains piercing the often-bright blue sky. Where the rich and famous—and hangers-on—crowd out Aspen and Vail, Telluride offers a refined alternative to the other bustling hot spots of Colorado with its tight-knit, small-town vibe from its independent shops, hotels and restaurants.
The hilly hamlet (it’s only eight blocks deep and 12 blocks long) is a favorite among celebrities — Tom Cruise and Laura Linney have homes here, and Ralph Lauren owns a sprawling 17,000-acre ranch right outside of Telluride — but the atmosphere is casual and unpretentious. Denim and snow boots are de rigueur in even the most upscale of restaurants, and locals cheerily greet you on the way to a brewpub or coming home from a great day of skiing.
