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 outdoors at Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours and Rim Trail/ Campus Loop. There's lots more to do: see the sights as you ascend with Mountain Waters Rafting & Adventure Company, look for gifts at Honeyville, get interesting insight from Flexible Flyers Rafting, and relax and rejuvenate at Trimble Hot Springs.
