After living in the Bay Area for 8 years, in January 2021 my wife and I (and dog!) moved to Durango, Colorado. We had road tripped through previously, and loved the pace of life, access to outdoors, fitness culture, and walkability. It's a small mountain town that has avoided stains of suburbia. We walk to the grocery store, and have easy access to mountain biking, river sports, rock climbing, hiking, skiing, and more. We're thrilled with our decision.
