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.
Popular historic sites such as Animas Forks and Canyons of the Ancients National Monument are in your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Rim Trail/ Campus Loop and San Juan River Walk. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Durango: Farmington (Berg/Animas Trail & Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness), Pagosa Springs (Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park & Diamond Hitch Stables) and Mesa Verde National Park (Petroglyph Point Hike & Long House). There's lots more to do: enjoy some diversion at Durango Community Recreation Center, examine the collection at Durango Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Museum, take in the dramatic natural features at North Clear Creek Falls, and explore the activities along Animas River.

In June, daily temperatures in Durango can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 44°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
