As the closest town to a national park known for its archeological dwellings, Cortez sits along ancient trails that native Puebloan tribes have used for millennia.
Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad & Museum and Anasazi Heritage Center [museum] & Canyons of the Ancients National Monument will appeal to museum buffs. Escape the urban bustle at Trimble Hot Springs and River Rafting & Tubing. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cortez: Mesa Verde National Park (Park Point, Step House, & more), Teec Nos Pos (Teec Nos Pos Trading Post & Four Corners Monument) and Durango (Historic Downtown Durango, Zipline, & more). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Hovenweep National Monument, explore the striking landscape at Valley of the Gods, do a tasting at Wines of the San Juan, and admire the majestic nature at The Edge of the Cedars State Park.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Cortez tour planner.
