Mountain towns offer a special kind of small-town bliss. While they attract many visitors during the wintertime thanks to snowy conditions and comfortable lodges, the warmer seasons bring beautiful flower fields, energetic festivals, nature exploration, and waterfront activities. One of the biggest appeals is the exposure to breathtaking alpine views and other scenic environments. Nearby state and national parks also contribute to the natural beauty surrounding these communities.

With so many gorgeous mountain towns competing for people's attention, Yardbreaker compiled a list of the "most scenic" ones in America. Colorado has plenty of worthy contenders, but two popular destinations landed on the list.

Telluride is quickly becoming one of the Centennial State's most recognizable stops. Visitors are treated to grand views of the Rocky Mountains and the Victorian-style homes that line the town's streets. If you're fond of outdoor adventures, there's no shortage of options here.

Then there's Aspen, which almost needs no introduction. The thrilling ski areas put this esteemed city on the map, but there are plenty of opportunities to explore the natural landscape. Travelers can experience jaw-dropping views via a ride on the Silver Queen Gondola or a drive on Independence Pass. Maroon Bells, one of Colorado's most iconic landmarks, is less than 20 minutes away, too.
