Durango

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.
Attractions like Zipline and Off-Road Tours make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Durango's surroundings by going to Mesa Verde National Park (Cliff Palace & Balcony House) and Pagosa Springs (Wolf Creek Ski Resort, Spas, & more). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Historic Downtown Durango, explore the wealth of natural beauty at San Juan National Forest, fly down the slopes at Durango Snowbike Experience, and view the masterpieces at Earthen Vessel Gallery.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Durango trip planning app .

In December in Durango, expect temperatures between 40°F during the day and 13°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
