It is really nice wandering around in this historic downtown shopping area with its' many eateries to tempt you to enter. Don't miss the Imperial hotel, it is worth a few photos at least. And there are many reasonably priced souvenir shops as well.

We loved exploring Silverton. Walking the Main Street (Green) was like stepping back in time. The town is not busy like Telluride and Ouray. It is more laid back and quaint. Not a lot of traffic. You feel safe. Take a stroll and shop. Henry...More

NO brand name stores, restaurants, motels here. The closest brand name establishment is the highest elevation Harley -Davidson store in the US and not really a bike store....It feels 'touristy' with t shirt and novellty shops, but it has the feel of an old mining...More

We stopped here because the road was closed for the Iron Horse Bike Race. It is a nice walk downtown and it as FUN to be there when the riders came in. Highlight was when the Silverton Train came in too.

I agree with Pecos. His review is accurate. Be prepared for cold and damp and snow. But with Global warming, who knows. It might be beautiful! If the train is running, the shops and restaurants should be open. Be sure... More
