Nestled in a box canyon, surrounded by the magestic San Juan Mountains, the more than century-old Town of Telluride is filled with colorful legends and the Rocky Mountain Spirit. 

Just six blocks wide and 12 blocks long, the National Historic District is a window into the town's mining past and a showcase of spirited individualism and community pride.  

Filled with colorful Victorian homes, clapboard storefronts, boutiques, art galleries, bookstores, gourmet restaurants, historic buildings and much more, the town is a delight to explore. The heartbeat of a vibrant past lives in in Telluride's present...and its future.
