While in Durango Colorado we got the steam train to old mining town Silverton. You are transported back to the 1800's. The journey takes all day from 8.30 returning at 6 pm as it's an 8 hour round trip. The train takes you through the most stunning scenery along the way. Children will love it. There is a local historian... More

Super little town in the beautiful Colorado mountains. The biggest draw for tourists is to see the old train come in from Durango. It is a beautiful old steam engine and exciting to watch coming into the station. Our 4 grandchildren loved the stage coach ride with "Sony & Cher" the horses and their colorful driver. Great little town for... More

I liked the old buildings and the history of the town. The old buildings have such character and charm. I loved the train. We rode it on our first time in Silverton and this time we watched it come into town, still exciting to see it round the mountain and blow the whistle. i loved looking at the mountains around...

Great place for beautiful mountains and places to see and shop. We went in the Old Arcade and it was great. The ladies in there were so friendly and helpful. We checked out several other places to shop but went back to the Old Arcade. When we asked if there were other places they were very helpful and honest in... More

This is my kind of mountain. There is no running water at the area and that says it all. People don't come to hang out, look cool, and drink wine while they dine in a fancy restaurant. They come for the real goods - skiing! Spending a season or more at a normal resort you will inevitably learn the mountain,... More

If you are a serious skier, you probably already know about it's reputation. No matter how good you are, there is terrain to challenge you. If you have any doubts about your abilities, this is not the place for you. I have seen grown men freeze up in fear in certain locations. If you can afford it, do a heli... More

As part of our Colorado vacation we included the mining town of Silverton. It was an immediate hit because my husband is a Harley-Davidson fan, and collects the tee-shirts from each one we visit. He is now able to say he's been to the highest Harley retail store in the country. We love the hospitality of the Harley stores, and... More

Silverton is a beautiful little mining town that is nestled in the Colorado mountains. It is amazing to see the little village from high above the highway as you make your way down into town. Cute restaurants and gift shops...and a wonderful steam train ride from Durangp to Silverton if you like.

This area is a bit depressed and really depends on the tourist trade but it is a beautiful place to visit. We came up the Million Dollar Highway and the scenery is just incredible. Cute shops, a small museum and the end depot for the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad. That train was quite impressive. Would like to come back to... More
