Want to visit the key locations at the heart of Netflix's Longmire series? Then there's no going past Las Vegas (New Mexico that is), stand in for the fictional town of Durant in Wyoming.

The Sheriff's Office

What small-town American crime drama worth its salt doesn't feature a Sheriff's office? After Walt's Cabin, the next most iconic loacation in Longmire is the Sheriff's Department. The door is easy to find and located on the southwest side of Las Vegas' central plaza. 

Thanks to a smart business owner, the entrance door still sports the Absaroka County Sheriff's Department badge.
