Montezuma County and The Beautiful City of Cortez

Gorgeous landscapes, rich history, cultural heritage, and abundant outdoor activities.

The towns of Cortez, Dolores, Mancos and Towaoc are the communities closest to Mesa Verde National Park.

Montezuma County is also full of outdoor activities. We're home to McPhee Lake -- Colorado's second largest. Here you'll find great boating and fishing, but you won't find crowds. Raft on the Dolores River or fish its gold medal waters. Hike or bike in our redrock canyons or in the cool San Juan National Forest on some of the most beautiful trails in Colorado.

For a real western flavor, climb aboard an authentic reproduction of a classic stagecoach, or take a horseback ride into the backcountry. Shop in our wonderful western shops and trading posts, and enjoy Indian Dances and Cultural Programs. Cortez is also your hub for exploring the Four Corners.

We're a short drive from Four Corners Monument, Arches, or Monument Valley, and centrally located on two scenic byways--The San Juan Skyway and Trail of the Ancients. We'll cater to your every need and budget, while you do exactly what you're here to do: enjoy yourself!

People from around the world have come to realize the wonderful quality of life that Cortez has to offer.  Everything that you could want, from deserts to lakes and streams, from plains to majestic mountains, Cortez is the center of it all. 

Cortez Colorado is a place where new families come to raise their children, people come to spend their hard earned retirement, and families stay for generations.  Ethnic diversity and natural beauty are only part of what makes us all so proud to be a part of Cortez.
