Durango

Trip Planner USA  /  Colorado  /  Durango
(4.3/5 based on 12,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: museums, adventure, sightseeing
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. Downtown, you'll discover a number of Victorian buildings set against a mountainous backdrop. The town of about 17,000 reflects its Old West roots, but the downtown area reveals the city's trendy side, with fashionable boutiques, organic cafes, brewpubs, and art galleries. The nearby national forest area draws tourism with biking, rafting, kayaking, climbing, fishing, and hiking opportunities. When using our United States vacation route planner to make an itinerary online, Durango holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Durango

Immerse yourself in Durango's rich history by staying in one of downtown's turn-of-the-century hotels, where the buildings' brick architecture highlights a bygone era. Not only do these pack plenty of character, they offer proximity to the majority of the town's eateries, stores, and attractions. A motel farther out of town is typically cheaper, while a rural bed and breakfast is ideal for a romantic getaway. For an authentic western Colorado experience, consider a dude ranch on the outskirts.
