Switzerland of America as it’s affectionately known…..

Jagged Peaks envelop this scenic Victorian Era mining town.  It’s literally breath-takingly beautiful.  Once upon a time Ouray mined it’s ‘hills’ for gold and silver. Nowadays the healing waters of the abundant hot springs; Ouray Hot Springs Pool, The Wiesbaden Hot Springs Spa  help ease aching muscles and over stimulated brains.  Additionally every kind of outdoor enjoyment may be pursued in this canyon and up in the mountains surrounding town; hiking, jeeping, skiing, biking, rock climbing, ice climbing and canyoning. Something for everyone all year ’round.

A different adrenaline for some might be a tour of one of the old mines, or a visit to the museum, or taking in a ‘show’ at the Wright Opera House.

In June, Fellin Park is host to FREE Music Concerts on Thursday evenings. Check the calendar of events for the line up.
