Things to See Before You Die

in Town

Telluride, Colorado is nestled in a valley in the San Juan Mountains surrounded by 14,000 foot peaks of pure beauty. This small town has often been mentioned in ski magazines as having some of the finest 360 degree views around. If you have not been to this great little ski town then you must contact a Telluride Real Estate and find a place to rent for a visit. Once you are here, you just may end up looking at Telluride Colorado Real Estate to own some property in this absolute slice of heaven.

When many people think of going to Colorado or to a mountain town like Telluride, they think of going in the winter to go skiing. What a lot of these people do not realize is that visiting the mountains in Colorado in the summertime is a wonderful time of year to go with a lot of fun activities to do and see. When in Telluride, you can go white water rafting, horseback riding, hiking, fly fishing and go to the many festivals and events that they have going on in the warmer months. All of these activities are enjoyed in beautiful sunny weather with warm but crisp weather, absolutely perfect.

If you are planning on coming there are a variety of types of lodging to stay in. There are luxury hotels, condominiums which are great for families, B&B's and even locations just outside of town to pitch your tent in a campground. Whatever your style or your budget, there is something for you in the mountains.

There are a lot of fun events and festivals that take place in Telluride as well. For music lovers they host the Telluride Bluegrass Festival as well as the Telluride Jazz Celebration. For movie lovers and they are known internationally for the Film Festival as well as the Mountain Film, Blues & Brews event. Another favorite event here in town is the Wine Festival where connoisseurs and wine lovers invade the town.

Many people call this area a two-for-one deal with the older Victorian town of Telluride and the newer more sophisticated town of Mountain Village just a short gondola ride away. Because this area is a bit more secluded and a lot less populated than other Colorado mountain towns like Aspen or Vail, some celebrities like Tom Cruise and Oprah enjoy visiting or even purchasing homes here. The scenery is unparalleled and the fact that it is a bit more private is a welcomed change to these celebrities that are constantly hounded by people and the paparazzi.

Because Telluride is such a special place and no longer the little mining town, real estate prices have risen greatly over the years. However, due to the recession, there are a lot more properties for sale and this is a great time to purchase something there if you can. Not only can you enjoy it in the Winter while you ski or snowshoe but enjoying it in the summer months is spectacular too.
