Colorado Avenue is the Main Street of Telluride. We spent an hour or so walking up and down the street stopping in at several shops, art galleries and eateries/bars. Very interesting and fun. Step inside the many old buildings---the New sheridan Hotel and the old Courthouse.

35 years ago Main street had a flop house you could stay for $5/night, some local crafts like pottery and and leather goods - all this is gone, as money ahs moved into town. But it still has the charm of a small mountain town in an old mining district.

A quaint, clean, colorful town nestled snuggly inbetween looming and protective mountains. A waterfall makes it's way right off the mountain and is the focal point, or "vanishing point" of main street....like a painting.

The main drag is inundated with real estate offices, tshirt shop, restaurants and hiking stores. It is very clean with beautiful flowers but forget about parking here. Leave your car at your hotel. There is limited paid parking and they will ticket or boot your car. Shops could be nicer or more quaint , I could find nothing to buy.

This is a great place to go shopping. There are all kinds of shops. Down side is some of the places are super expensive. Telluride sits at the base of mountains all around. It's like a culde sac. It is a ski in ski out town. The Gondola takes you up the mountain and you can go over to the... More

Main Street is a great place to stroll around and enjoy a summer day. Lots of great shops of all types--galleries, coffe shops, pharmacies, clothing stores, sporting good stores, clothing shops, restaurants, and anything you could... More

It's like It was when I was young. This town is not a big tourist trap like most of Colorado sure is has restaurants and shops but it looks so old and charming and the cable car ride is one of the very best to be had

Colorado Avenue is "main street" of Telluride. One of the most beautiful moments on it is the first time you drive into town, first ascending and noticing the lovely homes, and beautiful planter boxes down the center. Then over the crest and the vista is striking - the entire main street stretching out before you with it's charming facades, flowers,... More
