Travel site Trips to Discover recently came out with their Top 19 most beautiful small towns in America.  Not surprising at all – 2 Colorado towns made the list.

#13 – Breckinridge

#19 – Ouray

I have been to both and I can’t imagine a more beautiful area than Ouray, but I also love the variety in Breck.  Both have a beautiful backdrop of mountains, restaurants and great hiking.  What I loved about Ouray is the small town charm and the San Juan Mountain backdrop.  Gorgeous!!   Also, the best cheeseburger I’ve ever had was at Maggies in Ouray.  For pizza- check out Colorado Boy Southwest Pub.

Breck- great restaurants and lots of them!  Great Thai food downtown at Bangkok Happy Bowl Thai Bistro and Sushi Bar – I know- Thai in Breck- I was surprised too!  Another great dish – the Gorgonzola pasta at Sauce on the Maggie.

Another one of my faves is Salida, CO.  Great river town in the mountains!

What’s your favorite CO small town?
