Located in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado, Durango offers countless opportunities for hiking, skiing, fishing, mountain biking, and other recreational activities. Its stunning scenery includes the nearby Animas River and the rugged peaks of the San Juan and La Plata mountains. The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad winds through spectacular and breathtaking canyons in the remote wilderness of the two million-acre San Juan National Forest for an unforgettable year-round adventure. Durango’s charming downtown thrives with boutiques, restaurants, breweries, and a lively arts scene. Whether you’re drawn to the outdoor adventures, cultural events, or relaxed lifestyle of the mountains, Durango has something for everyone.
