Our stops included the Strater Hotel, Powerhouse Science Center, and Ska Brewing. Folks are very friendly and we enjoyed ourselves... More

We went to downtown Durango during one of the evenings that we were staying there. The weather was great so we walked the entire downtown area visiting the many shops that were open. It is a vibrant area and I advise if you are in the area, to stop and spend some time.

Parked and walked up and down Main street. Many small shops, great restaurants, and Durango & Silverton Railway. There is a train museum at the depot. Unfortunately, during winter hours it's only open from 1-5pm. So I didn't get to visit it.

Very nice downtown area, safe and clean. Beautiful scenery. Many shops along a 4 to 6 block stretch with everything imaginable. Restaurants of all type and price ranges scattered along the way. Parking can be a little difficult at times. Everyone very friendly and nice. Wish I could move here...

So much to do in such a small space! The 6 blocks or so of downtown (5th-11th) on Main are packed with bars, restaurants, galleries, boutiques, and an assortment of other shops. Great way to spend an afternoon.
