Cost of living is quite high while wages are also fairly low. This creates a tough living situation for all ages. Elderly people have a great community in Durango. The Rec Center offers a great pickle-ball scene, there are several golf courses, and the outdoor actiities are endless. Fly fishing opportunities are abundant.
I spend alot of time in Durango and not once I have seen any rude teens, adults, or elders. It seems nice a nice place to be in.
I see other seniors in the area
We have a nice age mix. I love it!
I feel like Durango, Colorado is an age friendly area because it's a tourist town. You can walk around and just about everyone waves at one another. Everyone smiles it's such a great area for all ages. Coming from Phoenix, Arizona it is a major change.
