4 Magnificent Colorado Mountain Towns for Summer Vacation

Looking for some ideas for summer trips? Whether you are a business owner looking to reward your employees, develop new business partnerships with an awe-inspiring trip, or are simply looking to take a family vacation, Superior Executive Services has some ideas for you.

Everyone visits Colorado in the winter — and for good reasons. With dozens of world-class ski spots, the Rockies are the perfect place to visit in the winter. But what about the summer, when the ski crowds have abandoned and (most) of the snow has left? The truth is that Colorado summers, especially in mountain towns, are beautiful. They are full of warmth, sun, epic landscapes, and tons of opportunities for outdoor adventures.

Here are four mountain towns to consider for your Colorado vacation.

Telluride, Colorado

If you are looking for a place that will give you the quintessential mountain town experience, Telluride won’t disappoint. The small town of 2,444 people is filled with historic buildings, dating back to Colorado’s Old West era. The town is tucked away in a box canyon, giving it a removed feel that is perfect for a mountain getaway. During the summer, Telluride is home to a number of unique festivals and ample outdoor opportunities, including a visit to the longest free-falling waterfall, golf, fishing, biking, hiking, and so much more.

Ouray, Colorado

Often praised as the Switzerland of America, Ouray is a must on anyone’s Colorado mountain town list. This can’t-miss town is located just south of the San Juan Mountains, which provides a gorgeous snow-capped backdrop for almost any outdoor activity. Whether you want to soak in natural hot springs, take in beautiful waterfalls and hikes, explore one of the many historic walking tours, or simply cleanse your spirit, this mini-Swiss mountain town is a great summer vacation destination.

Crested Butte, Colorado

Nestled at the base of the magical Rocky Mountains, Crested Butte is a beautiful mountain town with a hippie flair and a strong mining past. It has been named by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of the “Dozen Distinctive Destinations.” Although it can take a while to access this small Western Slope town, it’s well worth the time. Like all Colorado mountain towns, Crested Butte offers ample opportunity for hiking, biking, rafting, and outdoor exploration and activities, including the Taylor Canyon, a local favorite.

Aspen, Colorado

It’s hard to beat an Aspen skiing vacation, but believe it or not, an Aspen summer vacation may give it a run for its money. After Aspen gets its warm-weather makeover, all sorts of beautiful opportunities emerge. Whether you want to take the gondola up Aspen Mountain for some mountaintop yoga, raft down the Roaring Fork River, hike a Fourteener, or simply enjoy the splendor of a mountain town summer, Aspen won’t disappoint. During the summer, the town of 6,700 becomes a music hotspot, hosting events like the Aspen Music Festival and a number of weekly concerts throughout the town. On top of this, an Aspen vacation also provides ample opportunity to experience magnificent beauty and fun in total luxury. At Superior Executive Services, we offer a number of Aspen, Colorado vacation packages that can include luxury accommodations, entertainment, hospitality, and much more.
