The town of Granby, Colorado is a small western community that offers visitors big ticket recreational activities and natural attractions minus the heftier costs generally associated with bedroom and resort communities surrounding Rocky Mountain National Park.
Granby is located along US-40 in the Colorado Rocky Mountain valley, near the US-40 and US-34 junction.
In Granby, overnight at a motel, condo, or vacation home, or choose to stay at a nearby resort or lodge. You can find everyday essentials and gifts at local shops and then choose from a selection of restaurants, with ethnic options including German and Mexican fare, including grills, bakeries and family eateries.
With Arapahoe National Forest and Rocky Mountain National Park just minutes away, you’ll have no trouble finding places to hike, mountain bike, boat, fish or sight-see. During winter, head to area ski resorts, visit a natural hot spring, or take to the backcountry on cross-country skis and snowshoes. During summer, attend one of Granby’s weekly rodeos or perfect your swing at one of four area golf courses.
There are many fun things to see in and around Granby. You can visit Sol Vista Ski Basin for some wintertime fun on the slopes. During summer, head to Lake Granby for an afternoon of water skiing and swimming. If you’re feeling tired and achy from hiking, head ten miles west down US-40 for a steaming soak at Hot Sulphur Springs Resort.
Getting from Granby to Winter Park is quick and easy. Just follow US-40 E for 20 miles. Along the way you can get great views of Arapahoe National Forest as well as the Continental Divide and Rocky Mountain National Park. Fancy some local western history?
