About Telluride

Telluride is a former mining town set in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. It sits in a box canyon at the base of one of the most popular ski-and-golf resorts in the world. The town’s historic district houses landmarks like the Sheridan Opera House, a performing-arts venue originally built in 1913, and the Telluride Historical Museum, which showcases local history in a converted hospital built in 1896.  

Today, Victorian architecture and colorful storefronts distinguish Telluride's Main Street, while the Mountain Village is a pedestrian-friendly alpine enclave. Foodies of all kinds delight in the quality of food in this small resort, boasting over 60 restaurants, coffee shops and bars.
