Help us Decide Where to Live this Summer!

Jump to last reply

Help us! My husband and I are planning to "move" to a "cool mountain town out west" (as my husband likes to say) for a month this summer. Our top choices are places we've been to before but also happen to be the most expensive (Banff, Telluride, and Jackson Hole), so we are looking for other suggestions. Our ideal location would have... lots of great day hikes within a reasonable distance, a walkable downtown area with restaurants and bars and maybe some fun summer activities like festivals and farmer's markets, but mostly we want easy access to outdoor activities and beautiful scenery. We are also looking at Park City (not sure how great the hiking is in the area though?), Boulder (great town but may be too big and is not really "in" the mountains), and Summit County CO (don't know much about this area but it was suggested by a friend who lives in Denver). We are really open to any locations at this point- Colorado, Utah, Pacific Northwest, California, Montana...

Any other suggestions or comments on the towns we're already looking into? We currently live in NJ, so we would probably be happy anywhere in the mountains since we have zero access to any at home!
