Lure them with the great outdoors

Everything from cycling to triathlons can boost tourism
Bouldering is easily accessible in Southwest Colorado, and taking advantage of outdoor activities is one of the main recommendations to boost regional tourism in a study commissioned by Durango’s Business Improvement District. X-rock on the north end of Durango is a popular rock-climbing area where businesses take tourists for a climbing adventure.
La Plata County’s venues for recreation, including the Animas River, the local trail system and the 450,000 acres of public lands can accommodate thousands more visitors, according to a study looking at ways to strengthen regional tourism.
Trails surrounding Durango offer many choices based on a rider’s skills. Durango’s Business Improvement District commissioned a report that suggests promotion of outdoor activities, especially in the spring and fall, can strengthen the local tourism economy.
Finding more events to use local trails, such as mountain biking events at Horse Gulch, can help boost tourism, according to a report by a private consultant.
