"Main Street charm in this little town"

Minturn is located just south of the Vail valley. This small mountain town is home to 1,026 people. It's a nice little town which has some neat store fronts on Main Street and more than a few good locally owned restaurants. The homes here tend to be priced well over state averages, but so are the median household incomes. There are nice little older homes located on Main Street and just off of Main, but when you get a little farther out of town, there are some really beautiful homes on large plots of land which most likely go for in the millions. The main industry here is educational services.

Minturn is located in the heart of the mountains and there is world class skiing very nearby. There are also numerous places to hike and camp as well as many other outdoor activities. When the economy took a down turn, Minturn was hit harder than most areas with high unemployment rates, although that seems to have changed for the better, although these statistics can be misleading in that so many people are now underemployed.

Overall, this is a nice little town in the heart of the Rockies, although it is more expensive than most, probably due to its close proximity to Vail.
