Durango offers an array of fun activities for kids of all ages, making it one of the top Colorado family travel destinations in the state. Enjoy an afternoon exploring the Powerhouse Science Center or splashing, swimming and rock climbing at the Durango Community Recreation Center. Take a trip to Mesa Verde and learn about the area’s earliest inhabitants, or get the creative juices flowing with a kids' class at the Durango Arts Center.
During the summer months, Purgatory Resort turns into a veritable playground for kids of all ages with the Alpine Slide, a zipline, rock wall, mountain biking, and so much more. Kids can also enjoy day- or summer-long kids' camps! In the winter, rent sleds at one of the area alpine shops and hit the slopes for some fast and furious downhill action that just about anyone can enjoy.
Get outdoors to camp, zipline, raft, fish, or bike in the summer; or ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or snowmobile in the winter. Let your kids explore new terrain and discover new experiences.
