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.

Holiday Dining in Ouray December 2015

Posted by Maria Ziemba on Mon, Dec 21, 2015 @08:20 AM

Any day in Ouray County is one to remember. The beauty of this tiny town, nestled at the base of the Uncompahgres is breathtaking. It is close to impossible to find a view anything less than spectacular. The fresh mountain air is crisp and clean in the winter months, and soaking in the all natural mineral hot springs even more magical when the air is filled with steam as giant flakes of snow land on the water all around.

Ouray, Colorado is the Perfect Holiday Shopping Experience!

Posted by Guest Blogger on Mon, Nov 24, 2014 @12:22 PM

Escape to a Winter Wonderland in Southwest Colorado this season!

Shopping for Christmas presents can be a daunting task; the crowded department stores, the lack of supplies, and finding parking. Not to mention the fact that many of the gifts you buy are not as unique or memorable as you would like. The pressures of Christmas and New Year’s tend to extend beyond just the gifts. Maybe you will be having family or friends staying with you and are expected to prepare elaborate meals. Or perhaps you have fundraisers or other holiday events to run. All these added responsibilities can be overwhelming.
