I am planning a SW Colorado trip with my family for this July. We will be coming to Mesa Verde on Tuesday night and staying till Thursday. From there we will continue to Telluride where I am planning to spend 3-4 days. I am trying to decide whether to go to Telluride directly from Mesa Verde, or to spend Thursday night in Durango, do some sightseeing there Thursday night and Friday morning, and then drive to Telluride. This way we will take in the Million Dollar Highway. On the other hand we will be losing a day in Telluride and the surrounding area. Is there anything in Durango that we really shouldn't miss? We will have two kids ages 13 and 10 with us.
Thanks in advance,
