“Stores open after dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

The old town of Durango is small but filled with lots of interesting and different stores to pique your interest. There are excellent restaurants and many small shops selling quick bites also. As some of the stores stay open after the dinner hour during the week, it's a wonderful place to stroll and work off a delicious dinner. We stayed within walking distance of this area which made it very accessible.

“Great downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Stayed overnight on our way back to AZ from Colo Springs last August (2013). Great downtown. Love all the old buildings, and the old hotels. Durango has done a nice job with this. Shopping pretty good, and was impressed with the dog-friendly establishments. Would like to have spent more time here.....

“Very cute "historic" downtown strip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We were in Durango for a soccer tournament and had some free time. We loved this little area of town. Lots of shops to stroll in and out of and friendly people. Lots of little restaurants. I believe the parking meters were free on Saturday...There's a GREAT pizza place - Diorios. We bought some nice odds & ends at a sporting goods/outdoors shop right on the main strip - can't remember the name of it but they were very helpful and friendly.
