Have you been postponing your trip to Ouray, Colorado? There are numerous reasons to visit. In fact, Ouray was mentioned in a recent post on the Bravo network website titled the “Best Small Towns in America”. The post calls Ouray “one of the more beautiful towns in Colorado” and deems the town “a very tasteful getaway.” Let’s explore some of the reasons why you should visit.
An incredibly rich history. For those that enjoy delving into the country’s past, Ouray is like a real life history book. Its various historic mining towns offer a fascinating glimpse into Colorado’s once thriving gold rush while the historical structures give you a feel for the way people used to live. Even if history isn’t your thing, these historic sights make for some pretty awesome Instagram worthy pictures.
Fire and ice. When you’re looking to warm up from the chilly Colorado temperatures, the Ouray Hot Springs Pool will provide a relaxing ambiance. In fact, there are several different pools you can take a soak in. If you prefer something more winter-like, the Ouray Ice Park welcomes people of all skill levels and you won’t have to pay a dime to enjoy it!
No tourists. One of the worst things about visiting a new place is having to deal with hundreds of other people blocking your view, forcing you to wait in long lines, you get the idea. Ouray is something of a best-kept secret and you’ll never have to deal with massive crowds.
