Great boutique shopping. Interesting shops that offer a great variety. Saturday morning in late summer and early fall offers a great farmers market. Good place to sample many of the local bakeries offerings.

Downtown has a lot of shops and galleries and a large selection of excellent eating places from fancy to casual. I like to browse for old furniture and unusual items.

The downtown area is about 4 or 5 blocks and can be walked with light shopping in an hour and a half. If you are a heavy shopper, who knows. The shops are mostly filled with local products, very nice and unique.

We stayed The General Palmer in Sept. 2014 while visiting Colorado. Downtown Durango offered good shopping and food. The people were quite friendly. We enjoyed our visit.

The downtown is full of places to eat, drink and be merry but there are gift shops and lots of artsy places around too. If you have the time it is well worth walking the streets and taking in downtown. If you are a member of the ELK's tour the lodge as it has history of the lodge but Durango... More

The train to Silverton was just "awesome." A trip back into time and a unbelievable view of the wilderness. A must when visiting Durango. If you want to experience a "zip line" this is the place. Highly recommend the train from Durango to Silverton. Three hours of breathtaking views. Would do it again.
