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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Cliff Palace (in Mesa Verde National Park), Balloon Rides (in Albuquerque) and Million Dollar Highway (in Silverton). Next up on the itinerary: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, walk around Box Canyon Waterfall & Park, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Purgatory Resort.
