Tour North Carolina’s Cowboy Capital, Love Valley, Via Horseback On This Brushy Mountain Horseback Adventure

For the last 65 years, the town of Love Valley in North Carolina’s Brushy Mountains has held a remarkable distinction: it’s the only mainland town in the state that prohibits cars. The town’s founder, Andy Barker, made sure it was a law here that the cowboy way of life would always be a part of this tiny town resting in a valley a mere hour’s drive from Charlotte. If you haven’t visited the Cowboy Capital of North Carolina yet, then maybe it’s time to plan an adventure.
