Originally a frontier mining town, Durango is known today for its scenic setting, outdoor activities, and the 1880s steam-powered railway that takes visitors through sections of the mountains where roads don't reach.
Appreciate the collections at Durango Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Museum and Ouray Alchemist Museum. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cascade Falls Park and The Colorado Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Durango: The Anasazi Heritage Center (in Dolores), Cortez Cultural Center (in Cortez) and Mesa Verde National Park (Petroglyph Point Hike & Nordenskiold #16 Trail). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Animas River, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, view the masterpieces at Scenic Aperture Gallery, and examine the collection at Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum.
