Telluride, of course!
Surrounded by a box canyon of sheer cliffs and dense forest, the town of Telluride, Colorado is our quintessential ski-town pick for New Year’s celebrations. Amidst the festivities, which include a performance by Jefferson Starship at the Sheridan Opera House, Telluride will host its annual Torchlight Parade and fireworks display. After you’ve been dazzled by colorful lights and have brought in the New Year, get toasty at some of the local watering holes. For a unique Telluride experience, don’t miss The There Bar, which features brunch, tapas and small bites, classy booze drinks, and a modern twist on a wild west atmosphere.
