I love being able to step outside and know that I am part of a piece of history. Walking down Main, you can actually feel the ghosts of the past clinging to the historic buildings and hotels. The Strater and the General Palmer hotel especially have a very old world feel to them. You can only imagine the ghosts and stories lurking in every room and every stairwell. The architecture in Durango remains untouched and rustic in the midst of sky scrapers and mini malls. I love walking into the local shops and knowing the owners and how much they love their shops and being a part of Durango. You know you’ve escaped when you enter the town.
