Durango!

August 20 - August 23

News flash -- August is hot in the Valley of the Sun! Let's get outta town and head for the mountains -- the Rocky Mountains, that is!

The beautiful region around Durango offers lots to do, including one of the most beautiful drives you will ever experience, in the San Juan Mountains in Southern Colorado. If you have not ridden the narrow gauge railway from Durango to Silverton, it is a must-do. Or tour Mesa Verde National Park, the largest archaeological preserve in the U.S., featuring the largest cliff dwelling in North America. There are lots of other things to do in Durango, so whatever your pleasure, you will be able to enjoy it on this trip.

Our headquarters hotel is the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Durango, where they have extended a special group rate to our club.  Located on the Animas river, the DoubleTree is within walking distance of the Durango & Silverton Railway Station and all the restaurants, shops, and historic charm to be found in downtown Durango.

Sign up for this trip using the link to MotorsportReg below, and make your reservations at the DoubleTree Hotel Durango by July 26th. You will need a room for August 20-21-22 (checkout on Aug. 23). Use PCG for the group code, but check AAA, Senior, and other rates, as those rates may save you a few dollars more than our group rate. Our group rates start at $194/night + taxes & fees for a room with city view; $204 for a river view room.

If you prefer to make your room reservations by phone you may call 970-259-6580. Tell them you are with the Porsche Club, but again, ask about the AAA, Senior, or other rates if you qualify; one of those may get you a better rate.

If you wish to ride the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad to Silverton make your reservations early: http://www.durangotrain.com/Make your train reservation for Monday, August 21st. I recommend the train/bus itinerary, but you can take the train both ways; that is up to you!

If you have questions, please contact Rook Younger at pastpresident@az.pca.org
