Welcome to Ouray, the “Outdoor Recreation Capital of Colorado.” Centrally located in Southwest Colorado, Ouray is the perfect basecamp for your explorations, offering a treasure trove of unique experiences all year long. Long known for its hospitality and friendly residents, Ouray has been a home away from home for travelers, dating back to the City’s beginning in 1876.

Ouray is a National Historic District and includes beautifully preserved buildings that are home to locally-owned retail shops and restaurants. When visitors stay in Ouray during any of its magnificent seasons, there's always a variety of great dining experiences available. Whatever someone craves, local restaurants aim to please. If heading out to explore the mountains, get a picnic-to-go to throw in the pack or car.

Fun and adventure are never far away in the San Juan Mountains. Local guides and rental companies have everything that an outdoor enthusiast needs for an Ouray adventure, whether it's a Jeep, climbing equipment, skis, or a bike. But don’t forget about the winter fun, too! Ouray is home to world-class ice climbing and backcountry skiing.
