Located in the venerable Rocky Mountains, Durango, Colorado is an outdoor lover's paradise. I love living in Durango because of all the interesting recreational activities it provides both its residents and visitors. Fort Lewis College is a central hub of activity and the lifeblood of Durango's close-knit community. In addition to the college, plentiful job opportunities are found in the area's diverse service industry. The town boasts a diverse climate with four distinct seasons. The charming mountain setting provides a host of fun activities including ziplining, white water river rafting, skiing, and more.
One of the most popular tourist attractions is the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, connecting the two idyllic mountain towns. Located just 30 minutes away, the Purgatory Ski Resort features a variety of activities in both the winter and summer. However, the best area of Durango is Main Avenue. This Nationally Registered Historic District offers a myriad of quaint dining and shopping opportunities sure to please any taste.
