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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Ouray County Museum and Animas Forks. Get in touch with nature at Durango Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Museum and Petroglyph Point Hike. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Durango: Farmington (Salmon Ruins & Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness), Ouray (Ouray Alchemist Museum, Perimeter Trail, & more) and Mesa Verde National Park (Nordenskiold #16 Trail & Long House). And it doesn't end there: learn more about the world around you at The Anasazi Heritage Center, admire the masterpieces at Earthen Vessel Gallery, take an in-depth tour of Cortez Cultural Center, and explore the activities along Animas River.

To find maps, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Durango day trip website .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 68°F, and evening lows to 35°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
