Located 260 miles southwest of Denver, Montrose is the hub of the Western Slope of the Rocky Mountains and well-positioned for year-round adventure, thus the slogan, “Stay here. Play everywhere.” Minutes from hotels, restaurants, shops, and other city life, the Black Canyon National Park beckons you for jaw-dropping views and breathtaking drives along the rim or a pontoon-boat ride for neck-stretching views of the canyon’s sides. A unique place to visit and a great place to live, Montrose boasts a bounty of historical and cultural experiences and attractions for day-trippers and vacationers alike.

Maybe you are in the mood to go in search of rare wildflowers or locate spectacular waterfalls. Perhaps this is the trip to discover a relaxing scenic byway or visit neighboring resort communities such as Telluride or Ouray. We have many culture- and history-rich opportunities for you to explore as well. Learn about Native American heritage at the Ute Indian Museum, experience pioneer life at the Montrose County Historical Museum, and see over 500,000 artifacts from the Old West at the Museum of the Mountain West. Feel like shopping? Take a stroll downtown and see what treasures find you. No matter your desire, we have you covered.

As you allow the clean air, plentiful space, and spectacular panoramic views to revive your soul and rejuvenate your health, you will quickly discover there is so much to do that doing the same thing twice is not on the menu — unless, of course, you want it to be.
