My husband loves Westerns, so he has wanted to visit places like Durango (where parts of How the West Was Won, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and lots of other movies were filmed) and Cañon City (True Grit) for a long time now. These places are kind of off the beaten track, so I think it would be neat to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a while.
I was thinking of checking out a Colorado bed and breakfast directory to help get an idea of where to stay and what to do in those places. I don’t think we’d want to go to that area in winter, but it might be kind of cool to head out there for summer vacation. Maybe we could even take in the Grand Canyon as well!
I’ve never really been partial to Westerns myself, but if we’re going to visit these sites, then I definitely want to watch a couple of these films beforehand. I guess I’ll have to rent them the next time I’m at Blockbuster.
