The highlight of this beautiful mountain town is the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. This vintage steam locomotive train will transport your family back in time as you enjoy the breathtaking scenery on the ride from Durango to Silverton. Other fun things for the family include horseback riding, hiking, and white water rafting. Be sure to visit Durango Mountain Resort to ride the alpine slide. If you have extra time, take a side trip to explore the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park or drive up to Ouray, Colorado, known as “The Switzerland of America.”
