When you envision yourself in a place that lets you live life to the fullest, what do you see? Our region is rich in culture, adventure and history. From Mesa Verde to the peaks of San Juan County, there is something for everyone here in our mountain paradise. We enjoy over 300 days of sunshine and four distinct seasons of entertainment and activities.
For instance, you can choose to ride The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge trains, hike the San Juan’s, explore the ruins of nearby Mesa Verde, raft the Animas River, mountain bike or ski at Durango Mountain Resort. Restaurants, art galleries, and street music make up a vital part of a lively downtown filled with year round festivals and special events.
Durango receives more than its fair share of media attention. Phrases like “best place to retire”, “best place to raise children”, “best resort value in the west”, and “mountain bike capital of the world” reflect the mix of beauty, tranquility, and vibrancy that describes our lifestyle. There is always something happening in Durango. In the winter the entire family can enjoy skiing at Purgatory Resort or one of our areas other resorts. In the summer there is everything from rafting to mountain bike riding. The City of Durango throws events year-round and our beautiful downtown is filled with world class restaurants.
