Last week we wrote a blog post about Telluride being one of the top 10 cities to live in the US – as voted by Conde Nast Reader’s Choice Survey. This week, that vote has been trumped by an even better accolade! The same poll surveyed readers sentiments on city ‘friendliness’ and subsequently ranked 2014’s Friendliest & Unfriendliest Cities In The US . Not surprisingly, Telluride fell on the right side of this poll & Conde Nast readers also voted Telluride the #4 ‘Most Friendly City In The US’ (up from #8 in 2013). Here an excerpt from the article:
“Unbelievable beauty” abounds regardless of the season in this “laid-back” community. Not only do “majestic peaks wrap around you,” but the downtown area boasts National Historic Landmark status, so “you are truly in an original Victorian town that has kept the charm of a bygone era.” During ski season, you’ll find “zero lift lines and smaller crowds,” and in warmer weather, outdoor enthusiasts can “hike Black Bear and rent a jeep for Imogene Pass.” But the most winning aspect, according to most readers, is its “down-to-earth” denizens. As one reader says, “the nearest stoplight is 75 miles away, as is the nearest snob.”
Telluride is firmly on the radar of seasoned ski buffs & lovers of the alpine lifestyle. Telluride may be tricky to get to, but once you are here you will be blown away by the laid back, friendly vibe of the place, stunning beauty & that unshakeable feeling that the problems of the ‘real world’ don’t matter so much anymore.
