This is a small town, very small, but has a beautiful view, restaurants, shops, only con everything is very expensive, be prepared. We eat dinner and spend lot of time playing a board game, very cozy and comfortable
It is nice to see where the less-than-one-percent hang out. The shops were over the top and the people watching was outstanding. Get a coffee and plunk yourself down for some real reality entertainment.
Telluride is a quaint little town in a beautiful mountain setting. It takes about 10 -15 minutes to walk Main Street. Plenty of shops, expect to pay resort prices except in the Thrift Stores.
Visited Telluride Main Street in early November. You had the feeling that the town is preparing for something big...like ski season. Nice park, sledding hill, trails nearby, shops, restaurants and a visitors center. I have a feeling parking is challenging during ski season. Very walkable small town.
I much prefer the feel of an old mining town to the Disney feel of Vail. Sure, Telluride has long since ceased to be "authentic," but the aesthetic quality here is still way higher.
Wow! Cruised up and down the main artery here and no life at all. This was mid-day and it looked like some of the businesses were open, though no street life at all. Very surprised, but soon headed back toward Dolores.
You walk down this street and it's full of bars, restaurants, shops, boutiques, parks and incredible views in all directions. There's even artists standing in the middle of the street painting the scenery.
Telluride's Main Street is not very long but it makes for a worthwhile stroll. Park up at Mountain Village and ride the free gondola down to Telluride, then walk the few blocks to Main Street. Galleries, boutiques, restaurants, and a few food trucks. Thankfully, no chain stores!
Stores had same merchandise. Restaurants were not very clean, bathrooms weren't well stocked in spite of the fact that it was off season when we travelled.
