Summer in Telluride

It's that time of year again - with the glorious Spring weather setting in, thoughts drift towards the warm, sunny months ahead & the beautiful Colorado mountain summer. There is still plenty left of the winter season (don't be fooled!!) but it seems many people are getting organized for the summer already, and securing a vacation rental is usually high on the priority list this time of year. With a brutally hot & dry winter in the southern states in 2011, it seems no one is taking any chances for 2012. 

What makes Telluride so special during the summer months? Well, festivarians would argue that Telluride has one of the best summer live music calendars in the US. With the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, the Telluride Jazz Festival, the Americana Music Festival and past years feature shows of Phish & The Grateful Dead, Telluride is undoubtedly a hot spot for top musical acts. Food & wine are also high on the agenda with the Telluride Wine Festival and the Mushroom Festival. There are also 2 well renowned film festivals - MountainFilm & the Telluride Film Festival. Sport is another natural highlight of the Telluride agenda. Mountain biking, road biking, hiking, paragliding and rock climbing are just a few of the activities that locals and visitors love about Telluride. In 2012, Telluride is set to host a leg of the US Pro Cycling Challenge. This is a major event for a little town like Telluride, but I have no doubt that we will WOW the world cycling stage with the breathtaking natural beauty of our little box canyon.
