Durango Colorado VacationFounded in 1880, by the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, Durango started out as a mining town.  While the center of town continues to have a historic feel, the various cultural and outdoor attractions have helped Durango grow to become the largest town in Southwestern Colorado.  It won’t take long to figure out what the appeal is!  

Durango’s unique attractions include the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, Mesa Verde National Park’s ancient cliff dwellings, and San Juan National Forest.  Multiple art galleries, museums, breweries, and boutiques provide a vibrant downtown culture, and Durango is considered one of the top college towns in the country.

Those seeking to enjoy the surrounding wilderness will be amazed at all the things to do in Durango.  Take advantage of the extensive mountain bike trail system, whitewater rafting on the Animas River, and stunning scenery.  In the winter, Durango Mountain Resort offers skiing, snowboarding, snowcat trips, snowmobiling, and more.

Durango hosts events year round, including festivals, art fairs, live music and more.  Lodging packages that provide deals on hotels, train rides, and family activities are also available throughout the year.

Whether you want to get back to nature, immerse yourself in local culture, or simply relax, you'll find what you're looking for with a Durango vacation.
