CONDE NAST | Telluride Rank #1 Among The Friendliest Cities in the U.S.

Over the last six years, we’ve asked our readers to rate a city’s “friendliness” in the Readers’ Choice Awards survey, especially with respect to where you felt welcome. Did an outgoing local show you the way? Was the city easy to navigate? Hundreds of thousands of people took the survey this year—see what you had to say about the friendliest cities in the U.S.

Telluride, Colorado

Telluride remains everyone’s favorite mountain town this year, and we can’t blame them. Pristine skiing meets luxury in this remote Colorado city—”by far the most beautiful and accessible ski resort in the country.” Even the summer months have massive appeal, with the epic Bluegrass Festival drawing laid-back crowds every year. Our readers couldn’t say enough about the lack of huge crowds and welcoming locals. That Colorado “chill” is is for real.

7/15

Telluride, Colorado

Pristine alpine skiing meets luxury in Telluride, a picturesque former mining town. Grab a Local’s Lager at the Telluride Brewing Company, or learn more about the town’s history at the Telluride Historical Museum, located in a converted hospital built in 1896. Return in summer for the world-renowned Bluegrass Festival, where you can listen to live performances against the backdrop of the San Juan mountains.

Conde Nast Traveler | Telluride Among Top 10 Best Family Ski Resorts in the US and Canada

Best for: Ages 10-16 and families who want off–mountain adventures

Why we love it: Skiing is a blast for older kids, but so are Telluride’s off-mountain offerings. For example? The roomy residential lodging at the Madeline Hotel, set in its own corner of the mountain village with an ice rink, Dylan’s Candy Bar and the hotel’s supervised kid gaming hangout for ages 5-16; the storied downtown area where Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank; and snowmobile tours with Telluride Outfitters that take you straight into the old Alta Lakes ghost mining camp.

Condé Nast Traveler readers cast more than 100,000 votes for their favorite cities in the U.S. in the 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards survey—in fact, we got so much feedback, we had to divide our list in two. This roundup features the country’s smaller cities, with populations under 150,000.

Conde Nast: “The Best Places To Visit This Summer” – Dunton, Colorado Ranks #8 As The “Old West”

Click on image to see all of “The 30+ Best Places to Visit This Summer”

Road trip the Old West—and its new places to stay—with the whole family this summer. We love Dunton Hot Springs resort in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, which is why we’re expecting big things from its new Telluride spin-off, Dunton Town House. (And everyone knows ski towns are at their best in the summer.) Though it’s not new, we’re also big fans of Smith Fork Ranch, from the creative team behind leather goods brand Ghurka. It’s 90 minutes by car from Grand Junction but feels more remote—and only takes 28 guests a week. Grand Canyon Under Canvasbrings safari-style tents to the hotel-starved high desert about an hour from the South Rim. Or stay mobile and book a week with Airstream 2 Go, which rents 23- and 28-foot chrome trailers (and the SUVs to tow them) out of Las Vegas.

Snow bunnies seeking adventure mixed with relaxation and luxury will be far from disappointed in this picturesque former Colorado mining town now known for its first-rate alpine skiing. In the summer, be sure to take in the renowned Bluegrass Festival, with live performances set against a stunning mountain backdrop. A penthouse suite with private, outdoor Jacuzzi at the Lumière Telluride is a top contender for “best view,” though some say dinner at Allred’s Restaurant, 10,551 feet above town at the top of the gondola, can’t be beat.
