Durango, CO

Situated in southwestern Colorado along the banks of the Animas River, Durango is a relatively small city with a modest population of around 15,000 people. First settled by gold prospectors in the 1860s and operating as an industrial center for the Durango and Rio Grande's San Juan Extension, Durango continues to attract visitors with its striking scenery and its many parks and resorts.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Durango's economy is based largely on white-collar employment and the majority of the workforce is employed in office jobs, professional positions and service industries. More than 36 percent of residents work in administrative support, sales and food service jobs. The valley and mountain landscape, along with the many resorts and historic sites, have contributed to a highly successful tourism industry in Durango. In addition, Durango's vibrant college scene has boosted the economy, countering the city's recent population decline.

Durango is also a center for the oil and gas business; the town sits on the edge of the San Juan Basin, the second-biggest natural gas field in the U.S. And it's a center for beer brewing, with four micro-breweries in town.
