Telluride, Colorado is, in many ways, the fairy tale mountain ski town. Unlike its contemporary ski towns Vail and Beaver Creek, Telluride isn't right off of a major interstate highway but rather tucked way into the Colorado mountains.

The town is also known for its beautiful scenery, world-class skiing, and many great dining options to choose from. When it comes down to it, it's no wonder that so many celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld and Oprah Winfrey chose Telluride as the location of their mega-mansions.

As mentioned above, the ski town of Telluride has more dining options than you can count, which will make the "where do you want to eat" question that much more unbearable, but hopefully, we can help.
