Agreed. Touristy enough to be interesting, not so much so to be annoying. Still somewhat tacky, clinging to its historical roots enough to avoid the glitz of a tourist town. Until recently, it was still a productive mining town. High altitude, it is the highest incorporated city in the nation.

Fairplay. Small town and close to Breckenridge.

Dunno if I'd quite call it sleepy because there's plenty of tourists. I'm driving up there next week for a little cool-off, visiting a friend. Lots of fresh mountain air there, that's for sure. It's got all the amenities, and yeah, nature is all around. Gets a fair amount of rainfall, too. And you're right, it's a fair bit less far to drive to than most other places in Colorado.
