Drop your bags at your Durango accommodation and make a beeline for the Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum, the area's premiere attraction. Once a railway connecting the city to the silver camps in the mountains to the north, it’s now a beloved historic fixture of the region—and it has scenic views of the San Juan Mountains to boot. Book your visit in advance and "train" your eyes on the gorgeous vistas. Later, flop into a raft on the Animas River, take a hike in the San Juan National Forest or cruise the slopes at the Purgatory Resort, depending on the season. Towards evening, make Main Avenue in Historic Downtown Durango your go-to for a taste of the Wild, Wild West. Tired? Catch a show at the Henry Strater Theatre and call it a night.
Touch down at Durango–La Plata County Airport (DRO) and you're just 25 km southeast of the city. Many Durango hotels offer courtesy shuttles, so arrange one in advance and you’ll be good to go. You can also hire a taxi or private shuttle service to pick you up. Once in town, travel by foot or bike downtown, or count on the Durango T bus and trolley system to get you from Point A to Point B. Better yet, book one of Wotif’s awesome car hire deals to get into town and all around.
