Durango is situated where the Colorado Plateau mountain desert meets the San Juan Mountain Range, giving us a relatively mild climate with a mountain playground in our backyard.

The Durango and Silverton - Narrow Gauge Rail Road: Ride one of the few remaing coal/steam powered narrow gauge trains in the world. Journey through the wilderness area of the San Juan National Forest, following the Animas River to Silverton (90-mile round trip) in coaches, open cars and a coach built specially for wheelchair persons.

Mesa Verde National Park: Mesa Verde National Park hosts one of the largest collections of Anasazi dwellings in the Southwest. Most have been restored and walk-thru tours are conducted by Park rangers.

Classic 19th century hotels, Victorian architecture, saloons and hitching posts give downtown Main Avenue distinctive charm. It's the doorway to the Animas Valley, where ranches, rolling hills and a story-telling river take us back to the Old West and the romance of the American frontier. In this mixture of fantastic landscapes, the fun begins.

Mesa Verde National Park is 36 miles to the west, with thehighest concentration of Native American cliff dwellings in the country - rated the #1 monument in the world by theCondÈ Nast Traveler Reader's Choice Awards. From the Desert to the mountains, bikers, hikers, horseback riders and four-wheelers love the diverse terrain. Go from sage to sandstone to the high alpine San Juan National Forest, where 13,000 foot peaks, pine carpeted hillsides and the pristine Animas River create a wilderness playground.

Experience it by way of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, the town's most notable historic treasure. In winter, the climate really pays off.
