DURANGO, Colorado, (PRWEB) August 11, 2012
The Durango & Silverton Narrow Guage Railroad and True West Magazine announced the True West Railfest event, a five-day western style cowboy event to be held August 16-20 in Durango. Railfest, an ode to Southwest Colorado’s western cowboy heritage, will include the World Fast Draw Association shoot-out and competition, Native American Dancers and Heritage Train with the Southern Ute Tribe and Sky Ute Casino from Ignacio, plus rail-related special events and excursions with visiting narrow gauge railroad equipment. Visitors descending on Durango for the event are booking vacation rentals through ColoradoVacationRentals.com.
True West's Magazine’s colorful historian, Bob Boze Bell, will be on hand with historical antidotes throughout the Railfest. In 2011, True West Magazine named Durango one of the top 10 western communities in the U.S. Paying tribute to the Durango area’s colorful cowboy past is the primary goal of the Railfest, and attendees are looking for Southwest Colorado accommodations close to the venue in order to take full advantage of all the events.
Durango is also hosting the U.S Pro Cycling Challenge, a world-class professional bicycle race starting out of Durango on Monday, August 20th. This race will draw professional athletes from around the world, so visitors attending the Raifest event and those arriving for the Pro Cycling Challenge will all have a taste of both events, with the scenic mountains and breathtaking mesas od Southwest Colorado as a backdrop.
More travelers are choosing to book a Durango vacation rental home or cabin instead of a hotel room for the privacy and home-away-from-home comfort that only a vacation rental can offer. And, with plenty of travelers competing for Southwest Colorado accommodations in August, friends and families prefer bypassing the crowds and inconvenience of a hotel stay, and get more value from their vacation lodgings. Two or twenty people can stay together under one roof, with access to a full kitchen, laundry rooms, and added perks that make a vacation that much easier to enjoy.
“People have been taking advantage of vacation rental properties for short visits in places all across Colorado, the U.S., and internationally for years because of the convenience and savings,” says John Romano of Colorado Vacation Rentals. “We simply make it easier for vacationers to connect with homeowners who want to rent their properties out to private parties.”
The True West Railfest will feature special excursions by train to Cascade Canyon, Silverton, and Railroad Event Park.
