We have been coming to Durango for over 20 years and the downtown is always a great attraction. From the chocolate shop to the saloon you can stroll the whole way and find something that will catch your eye. Eat breakfast or lunch at Carvers and then go to the Gaslight to see a movie there is something for everyone... More

Great place for tourists. Many shops to choose from. No need to park downtown. There is plenty of parking around without trying to park on Main Ave. Good food is always available before or after shopping.

Downtown is very active , beautiful and plenty to see. You must go and see the train museum. bring walking shoes as you will want to walk thru downtown and see the stores.

Downtown Durango has something for everyone. Great food, treats, adult beverages and a huge variety of food. Dog friendly merchants place bowls of water out in front of their stores. It's just a nice place to visit.

So many great shops and restaurants. North of town is Honeyville a great honey and jam producer and south of town is O'Harrah's jams outlet. Stop at tourist information.
