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.
