If you’ve never heard of Ouray, Colorado we’d understand. It may be shadowed by its larger siblings like Aspen, yet there are many reasons why it’s referred to as “The Switzerland of America” and remains something of a best kept secret.
Ouray’s scenery will firmly remain in your memory the moment you see it thanks to imposingly regal mountains and expansive canyons. As you’re exploring the natural scenery, you’ll find ghost towns that date back to the 1800s, remnants of the once great mining cities. Many of these ghost towns once served as the setting or backdrop for classic Hollywood westerns.
A fun and very popular activity in Ouray is to hop on a four wheel drive Jeep and go exploring. In fact, Ouray has gained a reputation as “The Jeeping Capital of the World”. You’ll wind through historic wagon trails, soaring mountain passes, beautiful meadows, and more as you get lost among the trails and discover all of the flora and fauna.
It’s the perfect time to book a vacation and discover Ouray in 2017! We’ll be waiting to help you get acquainted.
