Dreaming of a vacation spent in the high peaks of the Rocky Mountains? With its famous ski trails, golf courses, and some of the best hiking, biking, and river rafting in the American West, this town in Colorado is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Located at 8,750 feet of elevation in a box canyon in the San Juan Mountains, this mountain outpost began as a silver mining town and was named for the mineral gold telluride—even though it was never actually mined there. Needless to say, this town has a rich history—that’s why it’s been designated as a National Historic Landmark District.
