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!

As a former resident, it is easy for me to agree with everything!! I loved it there, still vacation there, and feel I'm destined to getaway there for many...many...many years to come.
