The Last and Best of the West


Local Attractions

Take a vacation in one of the last places that epitomize the True West. The vistas are spectacular, the land is wild, the people are genuinely friendly and the opportunities for outdoor adventure, recreation, education, and entertainment are as large and as varied as the Wyoming skies.

Cody Country has varied camping opportunities, fine dining, world-class museums, and western activities. It is the only gateway community with two entrances to Yellowstone National Park and Cody is the hub for several loop tour drives that access five different day trips, including some scenic byways. Travel along the Buffalo Bill Cody Scenic Byway, and as you wind your way along the North Fork of the Shoshone River, keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife that inhabits this area. Have your camera ready to snap pictures of deer, elk, bighorn sheep, bison and, if you’re lucky, maybe even a grizzly bear.

Cody, Wyoming was founded in 1896 by the living legend, Colonel William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, who at the age of 41 was one of the most famous men in the world. Walk through downtown Cody and travel back to the frontier days, exploring sites such as the Carnegie library, founded by literary women of the frontier with help from Andrew Carnegie, and the Irma Hotel, Buffalo Bill’s “Hotel in the Rockies” that was named after his daughter.

Cody is home to one of the country's supreme cultural attractions-the five museum complexes of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, blue-ribbon fishing, white-water-rafting, and world-class rodeo. Explore outdoors and discover what keeps thousands of visitors coming back. Although seeing Yellowstone National Park may be one of the reasons you chose Cody Country, it is just one of the many adventures that awaits you.
