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

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

We were excited to visit this little town since everyone was telling us how great it was but to be honest, it was just okay. Good assortment of shops and eateries but the amount of pot smoking going on was crazy. We know it's legal in Colorado now but I don't like to have to walk around people to go... More

Walking downtown is like being transported back in time. There are no chain stores or restaurants. Everything is locally owned and you will be amazed at the wealth of choices.

Telluride's Main Street (otherwise known as Colorado Ave) is a long promenade of shops---mostly small, entrepreneurial businesses (no chains allowed). The pros: Without exception, people are remarkably friendly. There are no traffic lights in town; cars voluntarily stop and allow you to cross the street. Cons: This is not the restored, historic mountain community it advertises itself to be. The... More
