Living in Downtown Silverton, Colorado
A historic mining town that almost still feels like something out of the ‘Old West,’ living in Silverton, Colorado is a unique experience that’s hard to capture anywhere else in the world. Positioned right in the heart of southwest Colorado’s San Juan Mountain country, Silverton sits 9,318 feet above sea level and enjoys stunning mountains scenery as far as the eye can see.
As you might expect, the winter season in Silveton truly is a special time of year thanks to the Kendall Mountain Ski Area and Recreation Center, which features an outdoor skating rink and a single-lift ski area that’s perfect for families and beginners looking to enjoy Colorado skiing in a more intimate and relaxed setting.
In the summertime, the roughly 600 full-time residents who call Silverton home also enjoy a host of outdoor activities, including hiking, mountain biking, and some of the best fly fishing around. In addition, Silverton has also become a world-class camping destination in the summer, and if you haven’t heard, the town’s annual Fourth of July celebration and fireworks show is pretty epic as well.
So if you're looking to enjoy the beautiful Colorado scenery in a place that’s a bit more relaxed than some of the typical resort towns The Centennial State is known for, give Silverton some thought and we promise you won’t regret it.
