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.
Visiting The Springs Resort & Spa and San Juan National Forest will get you outdoors. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cliff Palace and Balcony House. Venture out of the city with trips to Farmington (Berg/Animas Trail & Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness), Long House (in Mesa Verde National Park) and Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park (in Pagosa Springs). The adventure continues: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, grab your bike and head to Rotary Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Purgatory Resort, and shop like a local with Scenic Aperture Gallery.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Durango trip itinerary tool .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
