Center is broken into areas of interest. Also ask the tenants for information you don't see. They will probably have it in the file cabinet for you.

This Welcome Center is just that. It is well done and the people are very friendly and helpful. They have brochures on just about every activity you can think of. It is worth the stop and is in downtown Durango.
