Outdoor adventures abound here. There are numerous hiking and mountain biking trails into the Holy Cross Wilderness Area and White River National Forest. Colorado 24, running through town is also a designated Colorado Scenic Byway, offering stunning views along the way.
Minturn Cellars winery, a few galleries and restaurants make up the historic downtown. The outdoor summer produce market is a pleasant place to pick up locally grown veggies and fruit. The tiny Minturn Country Club (not really a country club), located in the downtown area, is an ideal restaurant for the picky eater: Prepare your own steak, fish, or chicken kebob and toss it on the grill. The Minturn Inn, a refurbished 1915 log home now filled with rustic Western pieces, is a pretty place to rest your head, but Minturn is also a great spot for bargain lodging.
