Are you feeling cooped up? It is the dead of winter folks. Taking a drive can have many benefits. During the winter months, I don't get to see all the cute towns as often. One of my favorites and only 20 miles from Montrose is Ridgway, Colorado. The first thing you see before you get there is the Ridgway Reservoir. The town is quaint and so picturesque. There is more to do than meets the eye.

True git cafe is a rustic fun restaurant on the Western Slope. Their chicken fried steak is so delicious. We go to Ridgway quite often, so many great trails for walking. Or just sit by the river near the little bridge. If you are into fashion food try Gnar Tacos, awesome upscale tacos that you will surely not forget.

There is Ridgway Train Depot and Railway Museum both fun pieces of the history of railroading in Ouray county and surrounding areas. The train depot was open over the holidays for tours. Right down the street, you can grab a coffee at Cimarron Roasters, great delicious coffee, and pastries.

Last on the list, for now, is the Sherbino Theater, they have had some great bands play there. Micky and the Motorcars, a great Austin Texas band played there last summer. There are also cute shops to browse around as well. I love going to Second Chance Thrift Store for lots of great deals. Put Ridgway on your list to check out.
