Durango Travel

Ready for Take-Off?

From the mountains to the deserts to its unique downtown charm, Durango’s got a lot to offer. And although there was a time that it was one of the best-kept secrets in the Southwest, the word is out, and Durango is a town on the grow.

Revving It Up

In the 1990s, and early into the new millennium, Main Avenue was lined with Harley Davidsons and other motorcycles from 12th Street to the Gaslight Theatre—most estimates in those glory days of the Iron Horse put the number of visiting hogs over 10,000.

Public Art With a View

The Fort Lewis College campus is beautiful enough as it is, with sweeping views from its location on a mesa 300 feet above Durango of the La Plata Mountains, Animas River Valley, and the distant San Juan Mountains.

Not Your Typical Club

Settled atop the Animas River Valley—less than 20 miles due north of Durango’s historic downtown district—an exclusive, picture-perfect community exists.

A Win for Winter

Snow days. Children—often slow to roll out of bed for school on a cold, winter morning—somehow find unbridled energy to bounce right up, eagerly and enthusiastically dress, grab their gear and romp through crystal flakes, traversing the hilltops and mountainsides.

Durango Independent Film Festival

The 15th annual Durango Independent Film Festival kicks off March 4th in downtown Durango, and it’s turned into a can’t miss event for locals and visitors alike.

The Sky’s On The Rise

Owen Dake and his long-time friend Luke Hanson are the owners of Skywalker Construction and the visionaries behind some of Durango’s top construction projects.
