We love going to Telluride for the 4th of July! It is the best weather and so green and luscious! They have fun summer activities for the kids and the adults! They have wonderful mountain bike trails and hiking trails. Along with in the Mountain Village they have trampolines, hamster balls, a obstacle course zip line thing along with paragliding and water rafting!
After the parade there is different activities around town plus a BBQ in the park put on by the wonderful volunteer fire department.
Later that night when the sun goes down they put on one of the best fireworks shows that I have seen. You are in the town’s park in a canyon type environment where the fireworks echo and are in the sky directly above you which make it feel like the fireworks are falling right on top of you! It is amazing and a site to be seen for sure! I am sad that I didn’t get any pictures of them. You will all just have to go there and witness them in person!
My kids absolutely love to ride the gondola back and forth into town. The Peaks Resort and Spa is great location and is walking distance to the gondola. We valeted our car at the hotel and never had to have them go get it until we left to go home. Everything is great location and there is plenty of fun and food to be eaten walking distance!
