Durango, Colorado has become a world class destination
The Durango area has considerable market appeal. Formerly a humble mining town founded in 1880, Durango, Colorado has become a world class destination. The town is a year-round hub for outdoor sports enthusiasts for cycling, mountain biking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, world class fly fishing and hunting, and finally camping and hiking in 40 national and state parks nearby. In the winter, ski and snowboard at 5 ski resorts, including Durango’s famous Purgatory Ski Resort. Far from “just a mountain town”, Durango boasts more restaurants per capital than either Denver or San Francisco.
There is also a thriving art community in the many galleries, local music venues, and the concert hall at Fort Lewis College offering unique opportunities for expanding your creative horizons!
The region has a population of 52,000 and also provides ready access to the San Juan Mountains – arguably the most dramatic scenery in Colorado – and the New Mexican desert with its rich Indian heritage.
The area presents an attractive balance between the highly amenitized resort towns of central Colorado and the rustic authenticity of traditional Western Slope communities. The more temperate climate also affords Durango more appeal to those who love the Colorado lifestyle but are not as enamoured with the longer winters of the higher resort areas.
The location, lifestyle and real estate value of River Valley are unsurpassed in southern Colorado. River Valley provides dramatic beauty combined with convenience, recreational amenities and proximity to everything the Durango area has to offer. With its rural mountain charm and character, Durango has a state-of-the-art new hospital, many fine restaurants, hotels, shopping, a four-year college, varied cultural activities and there are endless activities for the outdoor sports enthusiast. Mesa Verde National Park, Durango to Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and other points of interest are just minutes from the ranch.
