Durango

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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Durango: Mesa Verde National Park (Balcony House, Cliff Palace, & more), Million Dollar Highway (in Silverton) and Balloon Rides (in Albuquerque). There's much more to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, trot along with a tour on horseback, explore the striking landscape at Yankee Boy Basin, and delve into the lush surroundings at San Juan National Forest.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, read our Durango day trip planning website .

September in Durango sees daily highs of 29°C and lows of 7°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
