While I may have been the Queen of my high school prom, Dodge City is the Queen of the Cowtowns! (Autographs available upon request)



Did you know the cattle drives from Texas lasted ten years? That was until a quarantine was put in place to prevent longhorns spreading disease. That destroyed the major source of income for the area and required Dodge to change from the wild and woolly cattle town to a respectable and prospering place to reside.

El Capitan is a statue that is located downtown in Dodge City. It represents the role of the lead steer on the old cattle drives. It is said that he is looking south because he is remembering the long drive from Texas! (He doesn't look to thrilled about it if you ask me)Today there are at least one million head of cattle in feed yards within 100 miles of Dodge City. I spent some time with one of my best friends driving around touring some of the current operations. She knows a little more about the cattle industry than I do...ok A LOT more! (But once I adapted to the smell, it was a pretty enjoyable and informational afternoon.)

Dodge City started as a cattle capital and a century later are once again a leading cattle center! What better place than here to come and enjoy a nice juicy steak? Try the locally owned restaurants Casey's Cowtown, Central Station, Dodge House, or Bad Habit.
?And remember folks...keep calm and EAT BEEF!?
