LIV for Local Flavor: Telluride EditionAmanda Molitor
While Telluride may be known for its snowcapped peaks and epic ski season, summers in this historic town are just as amazing. Here are some stops you must make on your next weekend getaway to beautiful Telluride.
Plan Ahead for Festival Fun
Aside from world class ski runs, Telluride is home to an exciting lineup of festivals that the town hosts throughout the summer. These lively events range from music festivals to arts festivals, food festivals, film festivals and everything in between. Check out this link to see what’s next and where to buy your ticket.
Breakfast at Butcher + Baker
A stroll down main street might lead you into Butcher + Baker, a local eatery that serves up delicious meals for all hours of the day, but it perhaps best known for its breakfast bites. From breakfast burritos, scrumptious egg scrambles and a host of house-baked bakery treats, this is the perfect start to a day of adventuring around town.
Make a Pit Stop for Brown Dog Pizza
Grab a quick and casual lunch at Brown Dog Pizza. Although Colorado may not be known for its pizza, this local joint put its pies to the test in Parma, Italy, where it took home the first place prize in the World Pizza Championships in 2015. Try a slice of the award-winning American-style pizza and the Detroit style pizza for a taste test of your own. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed!
Dinner at 221 South Oak
Lead by former Top Chef finalist, Eliza Gavin, 221 South Oak is one of the finest examples of elevated dining in Telluride. A favorite restaurant among locals, guests will enjoy creative takes on contemporary American cuisine while dining inside a historic home on Oak Street – hence the name. Here, there is something for everyone, from the molasses-braised bison short rib to the extensive vegetarian menu that offer meat substitutes and delicious twists on traditional entrees.
Lounge at The Last Dollar Saloon
Since 1987, the Last Dollar Saloon has been a beloved waterhole for locals. Enjoy your beverage of choice inside the historic building or up on the rooftop where they serve up views and brews. Before you go, make sure you call the babysitter or leave your pups at home. This establishment only caters to those 21+ and does not allow furry friends.
