Durango is a lovely town During Christmas time it is all lit up and you think that you are in another world. You have to come and see Durango for yourself to enjoy.

I walked around there and felt so safe. The shops were all unique and welcoming. Dont use a double stroller that is side to side though because it wont fit through most of the doors. I wanted to live there.

So sorry I did not see your question until early February, somehow I did not get an alert about it and missed it. My apologies. Use Downtown Durango org for everything about Downtown and all around town!
