This Colorado Town Named Most Magical Winter Wonderland
It's the most wonderful time of year to walk in a winter wonderland. OK, maybe not yet, but it will be here before you know it.
The holiday season is a time for memories from the past and creating new ones with family, friends, and loved ones. Here in Colorado, there is no shortage of places to do just that, but there's one place in particular that is the more memorable and "Christmasy" (yeah, we're going to make that a word today) than any other place in the state.
At least according to Trips to Discover, which ranked the 50 most winter wonderland towns in the United States and for Colorado, that town was Crested Butte.
Sure, we know that Crested Butte and many towns like that throughout our state are postcard-worthy any time of year. But they especially are when the holidays come rolling around. So, what made Crested Butte stand out in this survey?
“The town of Crested Butte, Colorado is often described as a surf town in the mountains. It’s one of those places where you can go and just relax. Stroll up and down Elk Avenue, the town’s main drag, and check out the shopping, galleries, and more good restaurants and bars than a town this size normally has. Crested Butte, which is part of the region of Colorado known as the Western Slope, is located about 30 miles north of Gunnison on Highway 135. Visitors make the pilgrimage to this place for its legendary mountain bike trails, beautiful wildflowers and steep skiing,” Crested Butte shared.
