The 20 Best Mountain Towns in America

The 20 Best Mountain Towns in America
Ouray, Colorado
Believe it or not, more horses than people lived in this former mining town at the end of the 19th century. Today, Ouray is home to around 1,000 residents and a sizable population of tourists. They can often be found cruising down Black Bear Road, chilling out at the world’s first ice climbing park, or frolicking on Main Street, a National Historic District chock-full of old buildings. Perhaps the most endearing of Ouray’s attractions is its scenic setting in the San Juan Mountains, which has earned the town its nickname, “Switzerland of America.”

  1. I’m surprised by how many of these places I’ve already visited. Beautiful video! …Roy

  2. if you’re talking about strictly scenery, you got it pretty good, about a thousand Alternatives equally good. if you’re talking about good place to live, that’s a whole different animal! I grew up in Summit County, and tried to live in two other locations on your film, the truth is a lot uglier than the scenery. ridiculous( San Francisco level) rent, shit selection of jobs, weather that looks like a die-hard commercial half of the year. 20 or 30 below zero with
    blowing snow is a lot more fun on television, then from being out there in it trying to start your car to get to work..!!

  3. Wow people, lighten up. Change is happening everywhere, there are no constants. Enjoy that you had it nice at least once in your lifetime.

  4. several mountain small towns in Colorado are beautiful, I know because I am a native. Also, some of the eastern high plains towns of Colorado are beautiful, Sterling and Julesburg for an example!
