This Wyoming Town Was Just Auctioned Off And You’ll Want To Visit

Half a million dollars doesn’t go as far as it used to, but in Wyoming you can buy a whole town for that much – liquor license included.

The tiny town of Aladdin, Wyoming was recently auctioned off for $500,000 and, considering the rustic hamlet’s charming surroundings and place in the state’s history, that’s a bargain. If you’ve never visited Aladdin, don’t worry about the new ownership changing everything and turning it into a modern, monstrous metropolis overnight. They plan to run the city in the traditional Wyoming way: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
