Durango was once know as "the worst-dressed resort town in America" and Durangoans proudly embraced the tag.

However in 2011 Durango was seemingly a constant presence in the national spotlight receiving accolades for more than our style. Here's a summary:

* Best Places to Live 2001 and Best Place to Put Your Outdoor Life First - Men's Journal

* Top Micropolitan Area in the US - Politicom

* Top Western Towns - True West Magazine

* Top 200 Towns in the US - Outdoor Life Magazine

* Top Ten "Life is Better Here" - Outside Magazine

* Colorado's Secret Stashes - Ski Magazine

* Durango selected as the start of the prestigious US Pro Cycling Challenge

In other good news; It's never been more affordable to own a Durango property. Down the road, people will be grateful they chose to buy now.
