Any city or town which has a thriving cattle industry. Ft. Worth, Texas may be the largest and best-known cowtown, although there are other places that do more cow-killin' business. Cities that have a heavy concentration of cowboys, ranchers, and other 'kicker types can also be called cowtowns.

I've gotten to the point where I mind cowtowns a lot less than I did when I was younger. People are generally nicer, friendlier, more generous, and more helpful, both to their neighbors and to strangers. Of course, all bets are off in the bars. Stay away from anyone who's been drinking and you're much less likely to get your butt stomped for having a funny haircut.

An affectionate name for Calgary, Alberta that should never be confused with Hogtown.
