The City of Gunnison is the county seat and the most populous municipality of Gunnison County, Colorado, United States.

Get out of town with these interesting Gunnison side-trips: River Rafting & Tubing (in Buena Vista), St. Elmo (in Nathrop) and Aspen (Independence Ghost Town, Independence Pass, &more). And it doesn't end there: mingle with the ghosts of the past at Animas Forks, contemplate the long history of Last Chance Mine, appreciate the extensive heritage of Ouray County Museum, and go deep underground at Yankee Girl Mine.
