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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Animas Valley Anglers - Guided Fly Fishing Adventures, Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum, Mild to Wild Rafting and Jeep Trail Tours, and other attractions. Explore hidden gems such as Cascade Falls Park and Petroglyph Point Hike. Step out of the city life by going to Piedra River Trail and Bear Creek Falls. Get out of town with these interesting Durango side-trips: Ouray (Perimeter Trail, Ouray Alchemist Museum, & more), Pagosa Springs (San Juan River Walk & Piedra Falls) and North Clear Creek Falls (in Creede). And it doesn't end there: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, look for gifts at Honeyville, examine the collection at Durango Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Museum, and get outside with Duranglers Flies and Supplies.
