Best Wild West towns to visit

Americans have always had a fascination with the Wild West. The gunfights, rodeos, tumbleweeds, and dusty saloons of America’s untamed frontier might sound like cinematic tropes, but they’re also a very real part of the country’s history.

Sure, Hollywood has dramatized the Wild West and turned it into a cinematic cliche, but that doesn’t de...

Long car rides, nights at big chain hotels, and visits to theme parks...
