From the mountains to the river rafting, from the gallery walks to the breweries and so much more, Durango is truly a small town where you can have it all.
We named Durango, CO, one of the 10 Coolest Small Towns in America 2018 because we love the way visitors to Durango can take their pick from a vast array of natural, cultural, historical, and culinary wonders. Check out our photo gallery (above) and get ready to discover Durango.
When it comes to hiking, rafting, horseback riding, or chilling in a horse-drawn carriage or narrow-gauge railroad car, the San Juan Mountains provide a spectacular four-season backdrop to your Durango stay.
