Retiring to Durango or Southwest Colorado

Retiring to Durango is a lifetime dream for many active, outdoor oriented adults.  Many visitors fall in love with Durango on their vacations and buy land, which they plan to build their retirement homes on. 

With the baby boom growing older and nearing financial independence, Durango finds itself growing to meet an influx of new residents who have reduced income requirements, folks who can live wherever they want regardless of income opportunity.  To this population, Durango offers an unspoiled environment where there is a great deal of community involvement, good healthcare and relatively little crime.

Retirees in Durango often find casual employment in our many service and volunteer organizations from the San Juan Symphony to the Adaptive Sports Association.  Durango offers something for everyone in the pursuit of an active and fulfilling lifestyle.

For Leisure Activities, Durango and it’s neighbors (Bayfield, Ignacio, Mancos, Cortez and  even Farmington) offer an amazing selection of diversions for such small communities.  Durango has a fabulous community recreation center which offers fitness classes and many many opportunities for interacting with you neighbors.  We have excellent golf courses from The Glacier Club at Tammaron to  Farmington’s Pinon Hills golf course, recently ranked #1 municipal golf course by Golf World. 

Restaurants here benefit from a healthy tourist traffic and therefore we have a number of excellent restaurants with quality and service well beyond what you would expect in a small town.  The Palace Restaurant in Durango comes highly recommended as a place to meet and eat.  Owner and chef Paul Gelose has worked all over the world including a number of years as the personal chef for Oprah Winfrey.

Seniors also receive discounted rates at the local Ski Resort Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort.
