Durango

— 7 nights
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.
San Juan National Forest has been added to your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Durango: Mesa Verde National Park (Nordenskiold #16 Trail, Cliff Palace, &more), Million Dollar Highway (in Silverton) and Notah Dineh Trading Company and Museum (in Cortez). There's lots more to do: kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, learn about winemaking at Four Leaves Winery, and take in the exciting artwork at Toh-Atin Gallery.
