Best Places to visit in Western Colorado

1 comment

Some of our favorite places to visit in Western Colorado are the Black Canyon, Colorado National Monument, the mountain towns of Ouray, Ridgeway and Telluride. In Ouray the Hot Springs is a popular and fantastic family destination. In Ridgeway we enjoy the Ridgeway State Park where you will find hiking, fishing and swimming at the swim beach. In Telluride we love to ride the free gondola from the moutain side to the town side and back again. You can stop at the top for a look around and a bit of hiking. On both sides you will find great pizza places and we enjoy them all. On the mountain side of Telluride there is a little park that our kids enjoy.

Thanks for the post! I have some dining recommendations:

Definitely go to Brown Dog pizza while you are in Telluride and get the Detroit deep dish. I dream about this pizza! The prosciutto, arugula, and balsamic pizza is our favorite!

Del Gnar in Ridgway has the best tacos! Pork belly, Korean short rib, Ahi tuna, and tempura avocado are all recommened! Thai Paradise in Ridgway has delicious, authentic Thai food.
