About the Area

Montrose, Colorado
“Stay Here. Play Everywhere.”

The slogan of “Stay Here. Play Everywhere.” was created because Montrose is in the middle of some of the most popular towns to do things in. While you stay in Montrose, you can play in some of the best tourist towns in the world, because they are located so close to Montrose. For example, you can go river tubing on the Uncompahgre River or go 4-wheeling or hiking in Ouray, which is only about 45 minutes away. You can go Ice Climbing during the winter months in Ouray, Colorado. Ridgway is only about 25 minutes away and offers river tubing, paddleboarding and lake fun, mountain biking, and hiking. Don’t forget to go camping in the summer months!

Montrose, CO is home to the Montrose Water Sports Park and the largest Rec Center on the Western Slope. You can spend time with your furry friends at the dog park, and even hit the running trails that connect all over town. We are that outdoorsy, dog loving town located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I can’t wait to show you around my town!
