Wyoming's Wind River Country

True West Magazine: Dubois is Best Architecturally Preserved Town

DUBOIS—Dubois isn’t new to True West Magazine’s top lists. This year, the gateway to Wyoming’s Wind River Country from Yellowstone was named True West’s Best Architecturally Preserved Town.


The February 2018 issue of the magazine, which hasn’t hit racks yet, raves over Dubois’ downtown atmosphere and rich, Wild West history. The cowboy town was included in 2008, 2010, 2011, and 2012 issues of True West.


“Butch Cassidy once ranched in the area, and legend has it he visited the town regularly and shopped at the historic Welty’s General Store, built in downtown in 1899,” the 2018 Best of the West section of the magazine declares. “Visitors to Dubois will enjoy walking, shopping, dining and touring the city’s center, much of which was built over a century ago.”


Dubois, located just over the Continental Divide from Yellowstone National Park, is a glimpse into the true Wyoming, where heritage is cherished and community is central. Travelers will find authentic experiences for all ages, ranging from Friday night rodeos and Tuesday night square dancing all summer long to cozy welcomes at lodges for snowmobilers fresh off the Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail.


Pick up the magazine in February to preserve your 2018 as your best vacation in the West.
