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.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Sat): trot along with a tour on horseback. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun): look for gifts at Honeyville, then don't miss a visit to Historic Downtown Durango, and then relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.

For photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Durango tour itinerary planner.

Dallas to Durango is an approximately 5- hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Dallas to Durango.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) early enough to travel to Lafayette.
