Small enough to feel comfortable and friendly, yet big enough to feel exciting, Durango is the perfect college town. In addition to the abundant sunshine and endless outdoor sports at your doorstep (world-class hiking, biking, rafting, skiing, and more), Durango is home to a thriving community, with ample shopping, restaurants, coffee shops and entertainment. It's no wonder that Durango was recently ranked as one of the nation's top college towns.
