“Quaint, stunning!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

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.

“Nice walking street but limited parking”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

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.

“If you like to shop”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

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 other side to Mountain Village. We took the gondola at night. It was fun to go over the mountain and see the lights of downtown. It was kind of freaky to be riding in the dark. If you are afraid of heights, I wouldn't recommend the gondola.
The views are phenomenal and worth the trip. It's not the easiest place to get too. But it was worth it.

“Great Town, Restaurants, and Shopping”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Main Street has it all. Gorgeous view, wonderful restaurants, great shopping, and interesting people. Telluride is the best place any season of the year. 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 want. Being able to find anything, you get to enjoy the beautiful views and talk to interesting people.

“My favorite Colorado town”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

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
