Montrose

 Printable Version

Welcome to Montrose. 

 

Storied Montrose literally got its name from a story—"A Legend of Montrose" by Sir Walter Scott. With the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park to the east, Telluride and Crested Butte ski areas in the San Juan Mountains to the south, and the Uncompahgre River running through it, Montrose is a recreational year-round hub. The Unaweep/Tabeguache Scenic & Historic Byway, among others, will delight your eyes, while a variety of museums will stimulate your mind.

The natural beauty of the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area, the San Miguel River, and other outdoor attractions will keep you occupied with rafting, fishing, golfing, camping, rock climbing, snowshoeing, and more.

Sculptures decorate historic downtown Montrose. Victorian-era buildings house art galleries, shops, restaurants, and brew pubs, blending the old with the new. All this presents an attractive backdrop for festivals and community events in a town where "Quality of Life is Our Commitment."
