Durango is the mining city of La Plata County in Colorado, United States. It is also the county seat of La Plata with a population of around 16,000 inhabitants. This town is the base for excursions to the famous San Juan Mountains and also for the historic narrow gauge railroad connecting Durango to Silverton.
Blessed with an ideal, mild climate in all the four seasons, Durango has moderate winters and warm, sunny summers. Spring brings in the rains and lush vegetation while fall is cool and dry creating favourable conditions for outdoor activities.
Founded in 1880, Durango was recognised as a Mexican state in 1825 and its rail system paved the ways for its development. Once limited to agriculture and mining, the economy of Durango now also includes textiles, wood, mining and electronics.
