Durango Wins Top Western Town

We’ve done it again.

Durango took the No. 1 spot in True West Magazine’s 2015 Top Western Towns, according to a Durango Area Tourism Office news release.

“Durango has more to offer than just about any Old West town,” said True West Executive Editor Bob Boze Bell, in the release. “For their enthusiastic support of so many Western-themed activities and their determined efforts to preserve their heritage, we’re proud to name Durango as our No. 1 True Western Town for 2015.”

This is the tenth year True West Magazine has presented this annual award. Editors base their selection on criteria demonstrating how each town has preserved its history through old buildings, museums and other institutions, events, and promotions of historic resources, the release said.
