Things to do

Tourist attractions near Durango vacation rentals

Before you check out of your Durango vacation rental, you need to do one thing—take a ride aboard the iconic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. The 1920s, steam-powered train travels to the historic mining town of Silverton, Colorado, passing through rugged mountains and canyons. Back in Durango, the affiliated Railroad Museum highlights historic railway items, including restored locomotives and baggage cars. If you want to step back in time even further, make the 35-minute drive to Mesa Verde National Park, where you can tour Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings of ancient Native American cultures, complete with intricate rock cravings.

Activities

What to do near Durango vacation homes

Your Durango vacation rental will be a good place to rest your feet at the end of a long day. But your adventures begin on the Animas River, where you can try your hand at fly fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and canoeing. If you prefer land-based activities, head into the mountains for some hiking, mountain biking, or rock climbing. Durango is also about 30 minutes from some ski areas, including Purgatory Resort, a 4-season resort with alpine skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling in the winter, and miniature golf, ziplining, and alpine slide rides during warmer weather.

Weather

If you're visiting Durango in the summer, slap on the sunscreen as temperatures climb into the 80s, the humidity is high, and the sun is shining. Fall features mild daytime highs in the 60s and 70s, along with a little bit of rain. When winter comes it's time to break out the parka. Daytime highs hover in the low 40s, but the real issue is snowfall—from December through February, the region sees close to 50 inches of white powder.

Take a hike! Get off the grid and get lost in nature

Just north of Durango lies the majestic sight of the San Juan Mountains, with jagged, rocky peaks towering in the distance. Between the mountains and Durango, you'll find the San Juan National Forest, a 1.8-million-acre wilderness area, where you can hike through dense forests, drive along scenic byways, and camp beside mountain lakes. The forest is also a popular spot with local hunters as they search for a variety of wildlife, from deer and elk, to turkeys and blue grouse.
