Vote Durango for the Best River Town!

Durango has been named one of ten finalists for Outside magazine’s “Best River Town in America” competition. The winner will be revealed in the October 2012 issue, coinciding with the publication’s 35th anniversary, and will be featured in a segment on the Outside Television channel.
