About the Durango Field Guide

A locals' field guide to Durango, Colorado built by Dirt Road Travels.


Dirt Road Travels builds city guides for destination marketing organizations. We partnered with Visit Durango to create a first-person, digital field guide that is one hundred percent built by notable locals.

We're called Dirt Road Travels because we know that sometimes, the best people, places, and experiences lie just a bit off the beaten path. Visit Durango understands this too, so we set out together to build a city guide for travelers, highlighting the authentic spots in-town and throughout the outdoors that locals love.

Dirt Road Travels interviewed dozens of famous local chefs, musicians, artists, brewers, adventurers, and entrepreneurs, all of whom shared what they love most about Durango and Southwest Colorado, and most importantly, their favorite local spots to eat, drink, catch a show, see, do and get outside.

Visit Durango and Dirt Road Travels worked together to highlight select, notable locals and curate the content included in this field guide, and here, you have the output!

A Durango, Colorado city guide that is based on the words and recommendations of notable locals. Together, Visit Durango and Dirt Road Travels built it this way because we've learned that seeing a city through famous locals' eyes is the best way to travel.
