I love living in Durango. Did you know that in 2011, Durango was voted:
+ Best Places to Live 2011 (Men's Journal)
+ Best Place to Put Your Outdoor Life First (Men's Journal)
+ Top Micropolitan Area in the US (Politicom)
+ Top Ten Western Towns (True West Magazine)
+ Top 200 Town in the US (Outdoor Life Magazine)
+ Top 10 "Life is Better Here" Town (Outside Magazine)
+ "Next Big Thing" (Outside Magazine)
+ Colorado's Secret Stash (Ski Magazine)
Even if Durango hadn't won all of those awards last year, I would still love this place! The people are friendly and non-judgemental. I love the outdoor lifestyle: the camping and biking and rafting and climbing and boarding that you do with your family every weekend. I love the weather. I love the mountains. I love that dogs are welcome in the stores! I love the schools! I love it!
I'm so thankful that I get to call Durango home!
