Silver City, New Mexico

November 18, 2016

I’m not sure how to chant a narrative about Silver City, New Mexico, other than it hums with a high energy that some of the towns we thought were cool had, before it was lost for reasons I won’t get into here. Silver City, a town seemingly at the end of the road, is a highly eclectic town that devoured me with the feeling of being welcome. Everyone I spoke with was amazingly open and sociable and we quickly fell into a fitting conversation. These freethinking people had thoughts and ideas well outside the realm of normal, which was like an aphrodisiac for me. Needless to say I contributed with some great implementation of dialogue and I really didn’t want to leave. 

      I will add some of the factual aspects of the town and area. Actualities like it was the starting point, over a stolen shirt, for the Billy the Kid saga. It was the stomping grounds of the Apache Leader, Geronimo. Nearby by you will find the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument and it is the gateway to Gila National Forest.  

     Silver City was also erupting with the elements I search for when discovering a energetic vibe in a new location, like a close proximity to hot springs, which it has. An amazing music scene, they have live music someplace all most every night, not to mention the concerts and music festivals. I also think one of the most imperative elements to any location has to be the art scene. Silver City was named one of the 100 best art towns in America. With a population of just over 10,000 people it is home to over 30 art galleries. Without revealing more, as this is just a teaser and you will have to go there to make your own assessment, Silver City, after just one visit, would safely find a spot on my list of Top 10 Towns. – dbA
