Holiday Dining in Ouray, Colorado

Posted by Katie Craig on Sat, Dec 03, 2016 @12:02 PM

The Holidays are here, and Ouray, Colorado is a great place to celebrate!

After our most recent snowfall, a blanket of white covers the mountains, inviting you to explore and play in a true Winter Wonderland. Sledding, snow-shoeing, ice skating and soaking in our all natural hot springs are just a small taste of activities Ouray has to offer. Of course, when planning a winter escape, it is always a good idea to know all of your dining options, particularly if you are planning a visit over Christmas or New Year's.

Santa Delivers in Ouray Colorado

Posted by Maria Ziemba on Tue, Nov 22, 2016 @10:39 AM

A CHRISTMAS TRADITION IN OURAY FOR OVER 80 YEARS!

 The Ouray Elks Lodge works all year, holding special events, BBQ's and meetings, raising money for the community. The funds these hardy volunteers raise are used to help pay medical expenses for some, scholarships to deserving students, and FUN! Perhaps one of the most touching events is when Santa comes to town. Elk members hold a special potluck dinner a week or so before Christmas, to help out Santa and his elves by stuffing dozens upon dozens of stockings. On Christmas Eve, several members of the club offer their services even further to St. Nick by becoming honorary elves for the evening, driving him to and fro, across Ouray County in all types of weather, to help him deliver gifts and good cheer.

Hiking in Ouray During the Fall

Posted by Rebecca Doll on Mon, Oct 24, 2016 @11:09 AM

After a long and busy summer in Ouray, it’s nice to take a deep breath, relish, and enjoy the slow, easy going moments. What does our little mountain town offer after the kids go back to school and everyone goes home to look back at all their fun-filled photos spent on vacation in southwest Colorado? Cooler temperatures throughout the day means wonderful hiking weather with beautiful sights of snowcapped mountains and golden, rustling leaves. A few of my favorite day hikes are the Perimeter Trail, Sutton Mine Trail, and Blue Lakes – all of which offer amazing views within the San Juan Mountain Range.
