My Favorite Westerns

A Celebration of Western Movies… Pardner!

Pioneer Town 


Sigh says: “Population 99”. Must be on holiday.

On our map I spotted a place called Pioneer Town – which I hoped might be an authentic Western style attraction. But it turned out to be somewhat of a tacky tourist trap. And we also discovered upon arrival that most everything here was closed – only open on Weekends at this time of year – I’ve really been batting 1000 – No Hog’s Breath Inn – No giant Marilyn Monroe statue – and now we come to Pioneer Town and everything is closed. Sheeesh. But it still proved to be interesting and a bit of fun.

      Thanks … Yep … we had a few laughs.

      Off season has other advantages – can’t spend any money.
