We are thinking of spending the night in Durango after touring through Mesa Verde all day. Is there much to see in Durango to keep us busy all evening (we do not have time to take the train) , or should we drive on two hours to Pagosa Springs to spend the night?
durango is a very lively town.
i once spend the night there when i was cycling through mexico and i remember the place as one of the livelier towns i stayed at.
Durango definitely has a nightlife. Much moreso than Pagosa.
There are several bars and restaurants along Main Avenue. Stay at a hotel close to that stretch.
I would definitely go to Pagosa Springs. I stayed at the Springs Resort (a real bargain during the week) and fell in love with the place. They have more than a dozen springfed hot tubs overlooking the river. If you stay there you can soak any time day or night. http://www.pagosahotsprings.com/
