Durango

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.
Bring the kids along to River Rafting & Tubing and Purgatory Resort. Change things up with these side-trips from Durango: Mesa Verde National Park (Spruce Tree House, Balcony House, & more) and Pagosa Springs (Spas & Wellness & Treasure Falls). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Columba Catholic Church, don't miss a visit to Historic Downtown Durango, and admire all the interesting features of James Ranch.

To see maps, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Durango road trip planning tool .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 44°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
