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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Durango: Million Dollar Highway (in Silverton), Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos) and Mesa Verde National Park (Balcony House, Cliff Palace, & more). There's still lots to do: hop aboard Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum, trot along with a tour on horseback, see the interesting displays at Ouray Alchemist Museum, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.

For reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Durango trip itinerary planner .

Expect a daytime high around 85°F in June, and nighttime lows around 44°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
