Thinking about buying Durango real estate?
What makes Durango unique? Well for starters, the people. Commonly and lovingly referred to as Durangotangs, locals exhibit a wonderful combination of laid back charm with a tight sense of community. Plus, things like over 130 places to eat, a four-year college, a Gold Medal fishing river flowing right through town, 2+ million acres of National Forest, four major ski resorts within 3 hours (one which is just 25 minutes away), and a mild four season climate help give Durango its unique appeal.

We like to get out and move!
With an almost unlimited array of recreation opportunities, it’s easy to see why we are often named as one of the best places to live for people who enjoy the outdoors. From whitewater rafting down the Animas River to skiing fresh powder in the San Juans to racing the train in the Iron Horse Classic, the Durango area has it in spades. Oh, and without the crowds.
Perfect weather in a perfect place.
Its been said that Southwest Colorado has the best of both worlds. It is a beautiful place to live, with arguably the best year-round weather. People come for the skiing, but stay for the summers. Winters are mild while Summers are fantastic with warm sunny days. Spring and Fall are both pleasant with chances to see beautiful wild flowers or the changing leaves.
Parks & Recreation for everyone.
With 52 parks, The community Recreation Center, and Animas River Trail there is a trail, park or facility for everyone’s enjoyment. Heck, we even have a ski hill in the middle of town. Note: This video was embedded from the Durango Parks & Recreation website.
