Colorado’s 10 Most Picturesque Mountain Towns ~
Once again Crested Butte tops the list as one of Colorado’s 10 most picturesque mountain towns. Perhaps it’s our small town charm or the stunning natural beauty of our surrounding forests and mountains. Maybe it’s the meadows filled with summer wildflowers or the snow capped peaks that surround our pristine valley. Whatever it is, it keeps getting Crested Butte recognized as one of Colorado’s 10 most picturesque mountain towns, this time by OutThere Colorado.
Crested Butte is well deserving of the number one spot on these lists. Take a stroll up historic Elk Avenue and you’ll feel like you’re walking through a postcard or magazine cover. No matter what time of year, the charming historic buildings give the feel that you’re taking a step back in time. A time when the pace was a little slower and the people you pass by still smile and say hello. Spring in Crested Butte brings out a fresh awakening of vibrant green. Summertime is splashed with colorful wildflowers making Crested Butte the Wildflower Capital of Colorado. Visitors come to hike and bike our miles of trails and take in the spectacular beauty as well as the annual Wildflower Festival. In the autumn months people come from miles around to take in the golden yellows, brilliant oranges and fiery reds of the fall foliage. After a short off-season, Crested Butte transforms into a winter wonderland attracting skiers, snowboarders and visitors from around the world.
Colorful Colorado is a wonderful place to visit and has many charming little towns that are worth passing through. Be sure to make Crested Butte one of them!
