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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Mesa Verde National Park and Durango Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Petroglyph Point Hike and Animas River. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Durango: Towac Visitor Center (in Towaoc), Ouray (Ouray County Museum & Cascade Falls Park) and Mesa Verde National Park (Square Tower House, Ruins Road, &more). And it doesn't end there: engage your brain at Powerhouse Science Center, have fun at Durango Community Recreation Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Animas Mountain Trail, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Columba Catholic Church.
