Historic Downtown Durango Tours

The heart of Durango is a nationally registered historic district where visitors can walk in the footsteps of the miners and railroad workers who helped settle the Wild West, though today’s Durango is quite a bit more upscale that it was when William Jackson Palmer settled the area in the late 1800s. Historic attractions include the original Strater Hotel, built in 1887, and the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, which still carries passengers between the two towns along the Animas River. The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Museum sits at the back of the railyard with exhibits describing the history of the town and the railway.

Practical Info

In addition to the historic sites, downtown Durango boasts a rich collection of shops,restaurants and art galleries. It’s a great area to explore after spending a day skiing or hiking in the surrounding mountains.
