1. A love for the outdoors
Telluride offers all genres of outdoor adventure for every member of the family. Enjoy a winter filled with sledding and ice skating, alpine or cross country skiing, sleigh rides, or ice climbing. Bring everyone on the river for rafting, kayaking, or SUPing. Not into the water? Hiking, golfing, and biking are just outside the front door of most Telluride area properties through the summer.

2. A closely knit, supportive community
The true lure of the our little mountain town is the people. A year round community of around 5,000 – second home owners and regular visitors will be sure to find their group of local friends and service providers they see each visit and can count on to support them in a pinch or dance alongside at a festival. From emergency services volunteers to the bar tenders of a favorite saloon or bike mechanics at local shops; our people are here to help you enjoy your time in Telluride to the fullest. (And enjoy it with you!)

3. Good food + drink
Telluride boasts a bevy of delicious restaurants as well as local, farm-fresh food providers. Enjoy a chef prepared meal at 221 S. Oak, The New Sheridan Chop House, Cosmopolitan, or the National. Grab a meal to go at La Cocina del Luz, Oak BBQ, or the Butcher & the Baker. Want to cook at home? Order locally grown produce, meats, cheeses, eggs and bread from Vicki’s Fresh Food Movement, get a great cut of meat or fresh bacon from Tomboy Butcher, or order pantry items from Ghost Pocket Pantry.

4. Locally owned boutiques, studios, and shops
With one Starbuck’s in the Mountain Village core area – Telluride plays host to a just a handful of franchises. The majority of businesses within the box canyon area locally owned and locally operated. To spend money locally shop for the latest fashions at Scarpe, the Toggery, or Two Skirts. Buy a bottle of wine at Bottle Works on San Juan Ave and then walk to Fir street to Over the Moon to pick up a charcuterie plate of your favorite meats and cheeses. On main street stop by Boot Doctors, Hook, or Zia Sun to pick souvenirs before heading home. All of these shops are owned and run by teams of folks that reside in the Telluride area. You can even support local business by patronizing locally owned and operated festivals such as MountainFilm, Telluride Yoga Festival, Telluride Workout Weekend, and Telluride Blues & Brews. All of these small, local businesses contribute to the charm and vibrancy of the Telluride community.
