“Cool town without commercialization”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Love this town....great shopping, cafes, vibe, etc. without the typical commercialization you see in the great ski towns. Lots to discover, overt it is not. For example live bands in the coffee house and hidden boutiques like Kelly's.

“You can cover everything in an hour but it's charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Very cute boutique stores, most of them very overpriced. You'll decide you need a new Patagonia jacket or boots. And there are plenty of cute, cool restaurants to try out. And a really cute toy and gifts store. And from everywhere you stand, you get a breathtaking view of the mountains.

“Old west town, good for walking around (eating & shopping)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I liked walking around and looking at the old buildings. Various places to eat and drink depending on the mood, shops for souvenirs, pharmacy type places for what hurts (after skiing ?), ski shops for new or renting equipment and assorted lodging is available.
I felt the souvenir shops were somewhat lacking in what I would term the usual stuff found at ski resorts, or at least the variety as I wound up not buying what i would normally buy. This part could be improved.
Liked the town as I like to visit old west type towns and learn a little about their history. In this case, Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank here for $24,500+ so they are steeped in history.

“Beautiful place to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Filled with boutiques, cafes and restaurants the Main Street in Telluride is worth the walk. Take a couple of hours after skiing, hop in the gondola and visit this area of the resort. You will not regret it. If you are not worn from the mountain make a reservation in one of their many restaurants and enjoy a drink and a nice, warm meal.

“Good shopping and a variety of restaurants.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Every ski town should be this lucky... Quaint little houses that now are shops , B+B's , galleries, and restaurants. It was fun to wander around after skiing and shop for souvenirs , then try and decide where to go for drinks and dinner .
