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.
You'll explore and learn at Ouray County Museum and Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum. Popular historic sites such as Long House and Petroglyph Point Hike are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Durango side-trips: Wines of the San Juan (in Blanco), Ouray (Perimeter Trail, Imogene Pass, & more) and Bear Creek Falls (in Telluride). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Animas River, take a memorable tour with Tours, admire all the interesting features of The Terraces at James Ranch, and identify plant and animal life at Durango Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Museum.

In July, daytime highs in Durango are 88°F, while nighttime lows are 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
