Let's single out Mancos. What's going on in Mancos? That community was nominated for Best Small Town Cultural Scene. According to USA Today:
The town of Mancos serves as the gateway to the ruins of Mesa Verde National Park, where visitors can learn more about the region’s ancient Anasazi. The town itself is home to a thriving artist community, complete with a growing number of galleries, an artists co-op and plenty of boutiques.
I was just in Mancos about 96 hours ago, and I'll agree with everything stated in that blurb. I regret not having more time to look around.
