There are so many beautiful towns in Colorado. There is so much mountain beauty period. But how about small towns with amazing views?

If you live in Denver, you may want to get away. The western slope is within a few hours. Any one of the towns along the way is breathtaking. I love driving by Vail, such beauty. If only my Husband would stop so I can ski someday.

From the list I came up with, I've either been to the town or driven by it. Telluride is a resort town, and quite popular. The high mountains are breathtaking. I love visiting any time of the year.

Glenwood Springs is a little over an hour from Grand Junction and has roughly 9,963 people living there. I had a wonderful time visiting a few years back. The Hotel Colorado and the hot springs are the best!

Lake City is the smallest in population on my list. About two and a half hours from Montrose. It's quaint and has a great brewery. Plus the lake is so beautiful.

Enjoy the list and all the photos. I highly recommend all these towns to stop in. There are several you can see on the same day. As they are close to each other.
