Water

The local lakes, rivers and reservoirs are an angler’s paradise. For guided trips try Telluride Fly-fishers at (800) 828-7547 or (970) 728-4477.

Rejuvenation

Head to the Wyndham Peaks Resort & Golden Door Spa (800-789-2220) for a rub and tribathalon: swim, soak in a hot tub and sample watsu, an in-water massage.

Refueling Station

Join the loitering locals on the benches in front of the Steaming Bean for some first-rate coffee-and people-watching.

On The Town

Built in 1895, the New Sheridan Hotel is a Telluride landmark. Belly up to the ornate cherry-wood bar, imported from Austria, for scotch and a cigar. For entertainment, slip next door to the Sheridan Opera House for a performance or movie in the exquisitely renovated theater.

Sleeping In

At the base of the gondola stands the Hotel Columbia (800-201-9505), a full-service hotel with gas fireplaces, steam showers and clawfoot bathtubs in every room.

On A Rainy Day

Browse photographs and artifacts that harken back to the town’s mining heyday at the Telluride Historical Museum (970-728-3344).

Festivals

There are so many summer festivals here that a Nothing Festival was created to ensure that burned-out locals get at least one quiet weekend. The Telluride Mushroom Festival, scheduled for August 24-27, attracts fungophiles and mycologists for a weekend of lectures and forays. Don’t forget to dress as your favorite fungi for the Mushroom Parade.
