Your guide to Telluride

All About Telluride

Nestled high in the Rocky Mountains of southwestern Colorado, among dramatic granite cliffs, dense pine forests, and some of the tallest peaks in the continental United States, is the former silver and gold mining town of Telluride. Once a regional boomtown that attracted prospectors out west, Telluride held such a significant role in forming the American West that in 1964 the region was designated a National Historic Landmark District. Eventually, the mining economy gave way to the burgeoning ski industry, one of the primary draws to the area today.

People from all around flock to Telluride for its easy access to nature, which begins right at the edge of the small town. The list of outdoor adventures goes on and on: hiking, skiing, fly fishing, paragliding, and whitewater rafting are just a few of the year-round activities on offer. In addition, Telluride’s art district is home to several galleries and museums housed in the town's original Victorian-style buildings, along with street performers and music for a lively downtown scene. There are also brewpubs, cafes, and a top-notch lineup of restaurants sprinkled throughout the central core of Telluride for you to enjoy after a long day of exploring the area's natural beauty.


The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Telluride

When searching for vacation rentals in Telluride, it is crucial to consider the sorts of activities you will be partaking in. Seasonal conditions in this high-altitude mountain town vary drastically throughout the year, along with the activities, events, and outdoor opportunities available. From May through September, temperatures and weather conditions favor hiking, mountain biking, and river activities. Several festivals take place during this time, like the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival in September. The festival is a three-day event celebrating regional and international musical acts and the area's famous craft brewing scene. The winter months regularly see below-freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall, making for excellent skiing conditions in the surrounding mountains and a great time to look for condo rentals in Telluride.


Top things to do in Telluride

Town Park

The Telluride Town Park is a 36-acre natural park on the edge of town. An outdoor swimming pool, fishing ponds, frisbee golf course, and various sports courts are located on-site for use by the public. Town Park is also where many of Telluride's festivals and events take place throughout the year. In addition, you can find locals and tourists participating in sledding, skiing, and ice skating during the winter.

Telluride Historical Museum

Telluride's reputation as an outdoor and festival destination often overshadows the town's storied history. Located in the middle of downtown, the Telluride Historical Museum has 10 rooms, each with its own theme, detailing the geological history, mining past, and relationship with the area's Ute Native American tribe through over 1,500 historical photographs and artifacts.

Stand-up paddleboarding

Several local bodies of water provide opportunities for stand-up paddleboarding at all skill levels. Alta Lakes and Woods Lake are optimal spots to enjoy the activity, both boasting calm waters perfect for riding. For those looking for more of a challenge, the nearby San Miguel River welcomes experienced and adventurous paddlers who may want to try their hand in some moderately paced moving water.
