Ouray, and the San Juan Mountains surrounding this small community, are an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. There isn’t any form of outdoor sport that can’t be found in the immediate area. The activities and things to do in Ouray varies from season to season but the choices are plentiful.
You don’t have to be a sports junky to enjoy Ouray though. Ouray Colorado has an outstanding variety of shops and galleries, a very popular museum, a historical walking tour, mine tours, and several casual walking paths that are great for those who aren’t interested in the physical demands of our other outdoor activities. We also have several terrific arts associations that offer many different programs. Watch their websites for more information on events and classes:
Weehawken Creative Arts offers great classes year round in all art forms.
Ouray County Performing Arts Guild offers great performances, concerts, and salons throughout the year.
Ouray County Arts Association offers great exhibitions throughout the year including the Artist’s Alpine Holiday held annually in August.
Whatever your activity of interest, you don’t have to be exhausted when you return home from your vacation. At the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs, relaxation and our guests’ peace-of-mind is our number one priority.
