Sightseeing

Don't Forget Your Camera!

Drivers on Main Street in Telluride need to be extra cautious of pedestrians who are often so engrossed in the beautiful scenery, that they literally don’t watch where they are going! This box canyon in the heart of the San Juan Mountains is full of not-to-be-missed sights for visitors to explore. One of the top attractions is the Gondola that connects the Town of Telluride to Mountain Village. This free scenic 15-minute ride is actually a part of the Mountain Village public transportations system and runs from 7am to midnight during the summer season and ski season. 

The east end of Telluride is home to the tallest free-falling falls in Colorado, Bridal Veil Falls, runs for 365 feet. While the falls are especially spectacular during the spring run-off, they run year-round and it is always worth the trip to check it out. To gain a more historic insight into the area, the Telluride Museum is the place to start. Along with the interesting exhibits, the museum also offers several walking tours, cemetery tours, and a variety of special presentations throughout the year. While in town, be sure to swing by the Free Box located on Pine Street. The idea of the Free Box is a community collective where you leave items you know longer need and are free to exchange them for items you may want. You never know what you’ll happen upon - finds range from paperback books to designer ski gear!
