Main Street, Telluride, Colorado, USA
Old West mining town turned ski resort destination. Location of first bank robbed by Butch Cassidy.
Population = approximately 2000. Elevation = 8,750 feet.
"A National Historic Landmark District with Victorian-era architecture, Telluride is nestled in a box canyon at the base of the Telluride Ski Mountain, surrounded by 13,000' peaks. The picturesque San Miguel River and river trail wind through town joining Town Park with the historic train depot. The town is less than one mile long so all accommodations are just a short walk to Main Street shops and restaurants or to the two ski lifts and the year-round gondola accessing the mountain." -Telluride.com
