Ridgway Travel Tips
Escape to the San Jan Skyway With Ridgway Vacation Rentals
Find yourself immersed in the natural beauty of this area by booking Ridgway vacation rentals. In 1891, Robert M. Ridgway established this town in Colorado as a railhead center for the Rio Grande Southern. Located in the Uncompahgre Valley at an altitude of just under 7,000 feet, the town became a crossroad for travel and commerce, servicing the surrounding areas of Ouray and Telluride. Today the town remains the northern gateway to the scenic San Juan Skyway, an All-American Road offering sweeping vistas and scenery.
Visit Movie History With Ridgway Lodging
If you want to experience Old West charm, Ridgway is the place to go. It offers conveniences and activities like jeeping, golfing, and rafting, but it has maintained a slower pace than other areas in the state. The movies "True Grit" and "How the West Was Won" were filmed in and around Ridgway Park. The town hosts a memorial park for Emmy award-winning actor William Dennis Weaver who appeared in "Gunsmoke," NBC's "McCloud," and Steven Spielberg's "Duel."
