Nestled in the San Juan Mountains, Ouray is one of Colorados best-kept secrets. Known as the Switzerland of America, Ouray has a little bit of everything for every one, for every season. Enjoy the splendor of nature on a guided Jeep tour, on your own by renting a Jeep or on a hike during the summer months. Go cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or ice climbing in the winter. Ouray offers both easy and extreme adventures. You can soak your troubles away, swim a few laps or work out at the Ouray City Hot Springs Pool and Fitness Center, year round. Satisfy your taste buds in our many restaurants and shop to your hearts content in our fine shops and galleries. Lose yourself in our history at the Ouray County Museum, rated by the Smithsonian as one of the best small museums in the country. There is so much to see and do, plan on staying several days.
