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. Use our United States trip app to arrange your visit to Durango and any other destinations in United States that take your fancy.

Our expert advice on 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.
