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.
Durango Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Museum and Towac Visitor Center are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Museum-lovers will appreciate Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum and Southern Ute Museum and Cultural Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Durango: Shiprock Rock Formation (in Shiprock), Mesa Verde National Park (Cliff Palace & Petroglyph Point Hike) and Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness (in Farmington). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at San Juan River Walk, look for gifts at Honeyville, take a peaceful walk through San Juan National Forest, and take in the natural beauty of Pinkerton Hot Springs.

To see maps, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, read our Durango trip itinerary website .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
