You should wait until July to visit Colorado’s best little town
Put it on your list for next summer.
There’s just something about a small town, you know? I grew up in a small town of about 1,200 people. It’s a nice feeling to be seen. Everyone knew pretty much everyone by name or face in my hometown. It was a unique blessing in many ways. Although everyone pretty much knows everyone’s business too.
The charm remains the same.
Most of the small towns I’ve been to, including my hometown, are rich in history. Because the population hasn’t skyrocketed, that means the big luxury amenities haven’t appeared either. Much of the city’s same buildings and features have remained intact. The most modern thing in my hometown was a metro. Everything else was local businesses that had taken over storefronts and restaurants that had been around for decades.
The feeling of walking through history is one of the reasons I at least like to walk through the historic city centers of the places I visit.
Now, since the internet likes to find the best and worst of everything, we’ve found a list of the best small towns in each state from Insider. Growing up in California, I was a little disappointed that they didn’t choose my hometown as the best small town, but that’s okay. When you come from a small town, you agree not to have noise around you because it only attracts more tourists.
Crested Butte is Colorado’s best little town.
Aside from obvious reasons very similar to what I talked about above, they picked Crested Butte for its beauty. They made sure to mention all the flowers you find here and said this is the wildflower capital of Colorado. While Crested Butte is great for snow activities in the winter, they suggested you visit during the summer months to see the flowers. And they specifically said July for the Wildflower Festival.
