YOU WILL LOVE DURANGO!
Durango is a lovely town and the historic downtown is quaint. We have the perfect mix of shops, restaurants, and galleries. Great places to eat and drink. The locals are friendly and helpful and almost everyplace is dog friendly, also. The Animas River roars through the middle of town and weaves throughout the valley.
Enjoy beautiful hiking trails, hundreds of miles of them in fact, that are immediately accessible in town. Outdoor enthusiasts are at home here, as Durango hosts endless activities such as: hiking, biking, skiing, river rafting, fly-fishing, and more. Durango also has a narrow gauge train that runs from Durango to Silverton every day during the summer, filling the air with train whistles iconic to town.
Durango has a western feel and is full of great opportunities to learn about the “wild west” and the Native American culture, as monuments like Mesa Verde and Canyon of the Ancients are only an hour away.
