Telluride Ranked Best Places to Visit

Telluride, a beautiful place in Colorado, ranked #4 as one of the best places to visit in November by US travel news next to Fiordland National Park. Although November may seem to be a bad time to go on vacation because of Thanksgiving, there are also benefits to traveling during this time especially if you know where to go. Some benefits that come with going on vacations at this time is that hotel rates are brilliantly low and crowds at popular places have decreased.


Telluride is a great place to go to during this season. Telluride comes from the word “tellurium” a nonmetallic element that often signifies the presence of gold deposits. This prompted many individuals to make their way to the region. Most locals, however, will tell you the name is just an easier way of saying, “to hell you ride.” Scary as it may seem, the explanation is actually referring to its killer ski slopes that lure many a winter vacationer each year. Powderhounds will find 2,000-plus skiable acres ideal for novices, experts and everyone in between. “To hell, you ride” also refers to the region’s rowdy atmosphere. Residents and visitors alike regularly gather in Town Park or Telluride’s bars for a heart-pounding good time.


Things to do in Telluride

One of the main reasons to visit Telluride is the fantastic ski slopes they have. It has more than 2,000 skiable acres which see an unusual pairing of 309 inches of snow and 300 days of sunshine.
