Although the snowpack in Colorado might not have been as substantial as previous years, there is never a bad time to visit Glenwood Springs. 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! The town is small enough that you can get around with ease and see parts of this little mountain town that you wouldn’t normally get to see if you’re just driving by. Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park         Located in the heart of Glenwood, you will find America’s only theme park…

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

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.

Hiking, biking, train rides, horse-back rides and raft trips all offer up-close and personal interactions with everything from wild flowers and mountain waters to historic saloons and ancient ruins. 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…
