Located in the Animas River Valley and surrounded by the San Juan Mountains, Durango is a city that is blessed with more than its fair share of sunshine. It is a great holiday destination for families, but you could save money on a hotel by opting for self-catering accommodation. Whether you are looking for a chalet near the forest or an apartment in the city, we can offer you a suitable rental property. You and your family will have more space and more independence. You can choose a location that is on the doorstep of the attractions you want to visit and save time and money travelling to and fro.
Durango itself offers all you could wish for in the way of restaurants, gift shops and boutiques on Main Avenue. In summer, you can enjoy outdoor concerts of classical music. Outside of the city, why not take a trip through the canyons in San Juan National Forest on the Durango and Silverton Narrowgauge Railroad? Not far away is the Mesa Verde National Park where you can go mountain biking or hiking and see how the Ancestral Pueblo people once lived in cliff dwellings. Relax with a sailboat ride on Vallecito Lake or a soak in the Durango hot springs. In winter Durango Mountain Resort is the place to be for spectacular views; you can of course go skiing there, or take a chairlift ride.
There are plenty of activities for families with children in Durango. The Children's Museum offers opportunities to record movies, learn about the solar system and pretend to shop for groceries. Youngsters will be fascinated by the Durango Discovery Museum, an interactive science centre. In winter, why not arrange some skiing or snowboarding lessons? There are also sleigh rides, alpine slides and climbing walls. Teenagers will love to visit the haunted house at Elk's Lodge, but it isn't recommended for children under twelve.
