The Must-Visit Small Town In Every State, Telluride is one of the best in America!
As per Thrillist, "This former silver-mining town hunkers basically in a dead-end valley, its mountains sporting one of the most gorgeous waterfalls in the world: Telluride’s Bridal Veil," adding that "With peaks great for skiing, mountain biking, or hiking, it's about as sweeping as it gets."
While the landscape surrounding the town of 2,500 is reason enough to visit, the town itself is even magical, with ample historical sites and restaurants, plus "one of the best festival sites in the nation, with renowned events like the Bluegrass Festival and Telluride Film Festival."
Founded in 1878, Telluride - like many of the towns of its time - was established as a mining camp that - unlike many of the towns of its time - managed to remain populated and prevalent even after the mines went dry.
