What is a better romantic place to eat than a place with a view? The Ouray Brewery is both a brewery with craft beers and a restaurant with mouthwatering dishes. Dine on of their two lower floors or enjoy the view of Ouray, also known as “The Switzerland of America”. 


Ouray has a plethora of outdoor activities. Take your valentine on a snowmobile ride or snowshoeing adventure.
