An Esotouric Road Trip: Visiting San Dimas’ endangered “Old Western” main drag with The Ukulady

In July 2012, the Esotouric gang went out to explore the offbeat gems in its own backyard, and took along their friend The Ukulady, and her celebrated ukulele. Of course she made a lot of new friends and everyone shared some laughs along the cute Old Western street that is the heart of Old Town San Dimas.

Sadly, there are plans to peel off the 1970s-era faux Western facades of the old brick buildings, and take up the wooden sidewalks sometime soon. There are few things we love as much as old brick buildings, but there's a real charm to this little pocket of fabricated Americana, and we'll be sorry to see it go.
