We know you’ve come to Telluride to experience the wonders
of the great outdoors, but don’t forget that this dry climate could use a little
rain now and again! Expect monsoon Season here to bring afternoon showers, lush
green trees, and blooming wildflowers. The rain typically comes and goes quickly,
but when it decides to stay, know that there is plenty to do while still
staying dry! Here are our top 6 Rainy Day activities.
- The Nugget Theatre: There’s
nothing better than sitting in the theater, relentlessly eating that buttery
popcorn, and hearing the thunder boom and the rain come down outside. The
Nugget is a little theater located on Main Street that shows 2-3 screenings
every day. Check out their website for a schedule of what’s playing.
- Ah Haa Art Classes:The
Ah Haa Arts Center is a gem here in Telluride, offering classes and workshops
for kids and adults. Check out their website for a schedule of classes. They
offer everything from cooking to printmaking and landscape painting. Whether
you are an artist or not, head over to Ah Haa and channel that inner creativity…I
am sure these mountains will inspire something to come out!
- Wilkinson Public
Library: Libraries are great. Walk
into the Wilkonson Public Library on Pacific Avenue in Telluride and you will
understand why. On a rainy day, I will almost always wander to the library to
grab a free movie (perks of a free library card!), or peruse the book shelves
and curl up in a comfy chair for a while. Mmmmmmm, books.
- Spa Day: Even the
most rugged of folk visiting Telluride deserve a little pampering now and then.
Visit any of Telluride’s number of salons or spas for some rest and relaxation.
A Massage, a facial, nail care, a haircut- take the time on a rainy day to sit
down and soak it all in.
- Indoor Rock Climbing:
The Telluride Gravity Works shop on Main Street is also home to an indoor
climbing gym! Don’t fret because even when the rain is coming down, you can
head over here to try some problems and get a workout in. They offer over 90 linear feet of indoor
climbing, bouldering up to 14 feet or top rope up to 20 feet. Check out their
site for more information on passes and lesson info.
- Pizza at the Brown
Dog: Well, if you can’t get out for a hike, might as well get out for a
drink! And comfort food? Yum. Sometimes
a rainy day means a lazy day, and that means no cooking for this girl. If you
agree with this statement, grab your friends and head over to the Brown Dog for
some pizza and beer. It’s always nice to get out of the house, even if that
means indulging in some good eats and tasty libations!
