Snow or no snow, there are still plenty of things to do while visiting this beautiful part of Colorado, especially if you’re traveling there by train!

If you have ever planned a vacation with kids, you may have been so overwhelmed you opted to leave them behind. Or worse, you ended up cutting your trip short because the trip proved to be too difficult. Let me offer a little sage advice: book your lodging and transportation ahead of time! Spontaneity works when you’re a childless couple comfortable pulling a tent out because you couldn’t book a hotel. After you have kids, you’re going to want to be sure you secured lodging because you and your kids will be much happier with a bed, a shower, and,…

By Mashi Salomon, Local Travel Consultant The day started off with the utmost excitement.

We all know it’s hard to put the phone (or tablet or laptop) away. But, Durango’s incredible scenery has a unique way of demanding your attention: anything on a screen is dull in comparison to the peaks and rivers, wildflowers and wildlife of Durango and the surrounding areas. So, put your gaming and social media on pause and opt instead for one of these grand, family-friendly adventures: 1. ATV Tour Explore the off-road high-country on an ATV tour.

Rex2 For the love of the train

By | Activities, durango, Durango Events, Durango Family Packages, Durango Zip Line, Train Packages, Vacation, Zipline | No Comments
We love the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. It’s not that we think this makes us unique, or even that we love it more than most, but we just couldn’t keep it in any longer. So, again, we love that train. We love it in more ways than we know what to do with, and we (all of us here at Gateway Reservations) have our unique reasons, but here’s an attempt to synthesize and share just some of the things we love most about the train (because a love this strong just shouldn’t be kept a secret): We love the…

And while intimate encounters are what travel is often all about, we’d argue that the “up-close” is made more powerful with a little perspective, which is to say: we’re big fans of flight. Make zooming out for a birds-eye-view of the wonder you witnessed up close a part—or the purpose—of your travels to Durango. Consider any combination of the following for a rare and spectacular perspective on the mountains, rivers and…
