Day 2

Ride the gondola into town. Watch for paragliders launching near San Sophia station. You can get off the gondola and enjoy breathtaking views of the mountain range.
Munch on a croissant sandwich at Baked in Telluride. Grab an extra large sprinkle donut for the kids - it's vacation.
Stroll around Telluride on a walking tour with local historian Ashley Boling. Make sure to ask about the galloping goose.
Afternoon
Eat lunch at Ghost Town, a restaurant specializing in toast. We recommend the local favorite, basil cashew pesto, heirloom tomato, avocado, and lime. The chili crunch topping is a must.
Shop Main Street. The town of Telluride limits the amount of brand name stores so your shopping experience will be completely unique to the Telluride area.
Evening
Ride the gondola to Mountain Village for dinner at Brown Dog Pizza. Kids make fast friends and parents enjoy relaxing.
Take it outdoors and lounge in an Adirondack chair by the fire. Kids can play in Reflection Plaza while parents enjoy some rest and relaxation.
