Colorado’s 10 Most Picturesque Mountain Towns

Colorado is known for it’s many quaint, picturesque mountain towns, many of which date back well into the 1800’s. Steeping in rich history, many of these towns have been revived as National Historic Districts to preserve their mountain charm. Surrounded by the Elk Mountain Range, Crested Butte once again tops another list, this time in the #1 spot of Colorado’s 10 Most Picturesque Mountain Towns.  Crested Butte delivers spectacular color in every season. Also known as the “Wildflower Capital of Colorado”, Crested Butte’s valleys and mountain sides are blanketed with gorgeous wildflowers in the summer months while the aspen forests offer brilliant golds, fiery oranges and reds throughout the fall months. However, nothing is more picturesque then Elk Avenue in the winter. Like something out of a postcard, the colorful, historic buildings against a snowy background make you feel like you’re in a dreamy winter wonderland. Decorated up for the holiday season, a snowy Elk Avenue lined with lamp posts adorned with holiday wreaths definitely makes Crested Butte a favorite holiday destination for many. No matter what time of year, be sure to bring your camera on your next Crested Butte visit and capture #1 on the list of Colorado’s 10 Most Picturesque Mountain Towns.
