Gunnison is known for being the home of Western State University but many people of all ages, including a number of cattle and horse ranchers, call the city home.
Gunnison offers grocery stores, a Wal-Mart, shops, and restaurants. Many that live on the north end of the valley travel to Gunnison for their essentials. There is a free bus that runs between Gunnison and Mt. Crested Butte with stops in Almont, CB South, and Crested Butte along the way. There is also a small airport.
Only about 45 minutes from the world-class skiing and hiking trails of Mt Crested Butte, Gunnison also has its share of outdoor recreation. Hartman Rock’s, just south of town, is a popular area offering many bike trails from beginner to advanced. There are also a number of water activities including fishing, rafting, and a whitewater park.
Gunnison is the perfect place if you are looking for access to beautiful views and outdoor adventure, while still having the conveniences of a small city available. Gunnison offers a wide range of housing options from condos to family homes on extensive acreage. Most homes are relatively traditional.
