Just couldn't wait to get to Durango. Yes it was a long way to go. Many many miles but I felt like I found the wild wild west. It was nice to walk around the town. We were referred to a restaurant but unfortunately it wasn't open. We enjoyed looking around the shops and ended up at the Salon. Would... More

Even after a long day of driving, it was relaxing and interesting to take in the historic district at night. It was Friday night, so the liveliness was to be expected, but still...the number of restaurants, bars and boutiques was impressive. Lots of people out and it was great to see how many people walked and biked downtown to partake... More

I just came from Salida which had a large old downtown and did not have the parking meters. I am sure this town gets plenty of taz money without the need for parking meters. I don't carry cash any more and found it a hassle. If you are going to do this take credit cards !!!

I enjoyed this area over the Summer of 2014. Downtown is filled with retail shops from t-shirt tourist traps to high end galleries, coffee shops, tea rooms, bars and not to mention old fashioned shoot outs held just outside an old timey Saloon. A must see if in this area.

We come to Durango every winter, mostly to ski and attend the film festival. We always stay in downtown Durango as an important part of the "experience" is walking the streets, visiting the galleries and enjoying the restaurants. I've never been a beer drinker, but I do enjoy the pubs and microbreweries in Durango. The Diamond Belle and Irish Embassy... More

There is a wide variety of things to see in downtown and the Durango info place (real store not selling tours) was very helpful with other things to do in the area. My favorite thing is to look at the Stratler Hotel. You can wander around the lobby and they have interesting items to look at. I also like the... More
