A gorgeous mountain setting; pristine lakes, streams and rivers; plus a virtually unlimited National Forest playground together with a near perfect climate make the Durango area an ideal choice for living. Add in a wide selection of fine dining, live music and theater, museums and art galleries, championship golf, gold medal fishing, hiking and a wide array of winter activities and it’s no wonder Durango has a thriving population of senior residents. Big enough to offer all one needs but small enough to remain friendly, Durango is an easy place to meet other seniors, become involved with clubs, social and volunteer groups. Durango and the area towns of Bayfield and Ignacio each have a Senior Center that provides activities and services for seniors in their area. Seniors Outdoors is a social club providing organized year-round outdoor activities and related educational opportunities. Healthcare is of utmost importance to seniors. Mercy Regional Medical Center is our state of the art hospital in the Three Springs area close to downtown Durango. The center attracts top physicians and support personnel. They too appreciate the Durango lifestyle.
