Things To Do In Gunnison

Of course, one of the most beloved activities in Gunnison is skiing Crested Butte, billed as "Colorado's Last Great Ski Town." You'll find outstanding runs for skiers of all skill levels along with groomed trails for Nordic cross country skiing. Plus, you can indulge in ice skating, hockey, tubing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and more winter experiences.

But when there's not snow on the ground, there is still a great variety of things to do in Gunnison-Crested Butte. Once all the white stuff has melted, you'll be able to see and appreciate the vast variety of wildflowers that grow here. In fact, Gunnison-Crested Butte is known as the wildflower capital. The snowmelt also makes for exciting whitewater rafting and paddling on Gunnison River or Taylor River. Anglers will be delighted with the trout that can be caught here as well, along with Kokanee salmon. And those who enjoy hiking or biking will not believe all their options. It's one of the best ways to see all the wildflowers up close. We enjoy the Neversink trail, which is an easy path that's one and a half miles long. It's easily accessible from Highway 50.

If a family outing where you can connect with the great outdoors and each other sounds good, fly to Gunnison. American Airlines makes it easy to get there and explore all the adventuresome options.
