Our trip to Durango would not have been complete without a trip down the Animas. This is a very family-friendly activity that I highly recommend. Since we have young children we went with a rafting tour instead of the easy rent-a-tube vendors that our friends with older children used. The Durango Rafting Company wasn't the most professional company but it was a good price with friendly guides. Children 8 and under are free (that is what made us choose them). They sell you a CD with your rafting pictures on it at the end of the trip for $20.
