Durango gets a mistletoe kiss from HGTV

As 2012 comes to a close, Durango can add one more item to its list of accolades.

Home & Garden Television named Durango one of the top 10 cities in the United States to visit during the holidays. In a four-minute video, the television station highlights Durango as a “stunning holiday playground” with powder skiing, sleigh rides and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad’s Polar Express, “pulled by a real steam locomotive.”

Durango joins places such as Woodstock, Vt.; Mountain View, Ark.; and even New Orleans on Home & Garden’s top 10 list.

Durango was also recently named No. 5 among True West Magazine’s Top True Western Towns, one of Sunset Magazine top 18 spots for fall colors and one of 10 “All-American Road Trips off the Beaten Path,” according to Yahoo.com.
