Durango, Colorado tops the list of Western Towns
What makes a true western town? Is it the cowboys that populate the town, the western-inspired architecture or rodeos that draw folks in? In my youth, our small Northern California town had a hitching post for our horses outside the Taco Bell. While the hitching post is long gone, I thought that was pretty cool.
According to True West Magazine, a town must exemplify the dedication and spirit of the American West to make their top ten list. Below are the Top Ten True West Towns of 2015 according to the magazine. I have yet to go on a horseback riding vacation to any of these western towns!
