Travel website Expedia has declared Dubois as Wyoming’s best place to escape, according to an article making the rounds again online.
In the article, the travel site broke down the best places in each state where someone can get away from the hustle and bustle and just unwind.
“From political unrest to natural disasters, the world is facing some trying things, and we’re right there with you in craving a peaceful retreat and a good place to relax,” the article began. “From quaint small towns to quiet nature preserves, this country is full of places to escape to, and we’ve chosen our favorite in each state, highlighting the perfectly restful things to do there.”
Expedia hailed Dubois’ Old West charm, even comparing it to a setting in the HBO series “Westworld,” saying the town would “cure your frontier fever and fulfill your Wild West daydreams.”
The article suggested checking out the Bitterroot Ranch for an expert-guided pack trip, the summer yoga and horseback riding retreat and the town’s skiing and snowshoeing offerings.
Other towns included on the list included Salida, Colorado, Red Lodge, Montana, Garretson, South Dakota and St. George, Utah.
