Located in southwest Colorado, the historic town of Durango is a true gem thanks to its rich history, memorable events, and numerous area attractions.
Founded in 1880, Durango was organized in order to serve the San Juan mining district but quickly transformed into a railroad town thanks to the nearby plotting of a Denver and Rio Grande depot.
If you plan to visit for either Christmas and/or New Years, get ready to enjoy the season amidst these picturesque surroundings, as well as have the opportunity to climb aboard the
Polar Express, take a sleigh ride with Santa, or celebrate New Year's Eve Prohibition Style, to name just a few.

...stunning (and oh-so fun) Purgatory Resort...
...and ample shopping and dining options.
In addition to the attractions in town, Durango is also close to a number of iconic Colorado landmarks including the Four Corners National Monument, San Juan National Forest, and Mesa Verde National Park (pictured).
