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.
Get in touch with nature at River Rafting & Tubing and Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness. Kids will appreciate attractions like Durango Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Museum and Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park. Get out of town with these interesting Durango side-trips: Aztec Ruins National Monument (in Aztec), North Clear Creek Falls (in Creede) and Mesa Verde National Park (Spruce Tree House, Cliff Palace, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take a peaceful walk through San Juan National Forest, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Columba Catholic Church, shop like a local with Scenic Aperture Gallery, and witness a stunning natural landmark at Pinkerton Hot Springs.

To see where to stay, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Durango trip planner.

July in Durango sees daily highs of 86°F and lows of 54°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
