The town has a wild-west charm with restored historic frontier buildings. For a true depiction of the Old West, stroll the boardwalk in Old Trail Town to visit Butch Cassidy’s Hole-in-the-wall Gang Cabin and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, home to five captivating museums that tell the story of Buffalo Bill and the American West. Browse the many western art galleries, restaurants and unique shops in downtown and learn the story of Buffalo Bill on a Trolley Tour to historical sites.
Buffalo Bill’s Personal Playground
Once the personal playground of Buffalo Bill, Cody is surrounded by wild land, cowboy culture and unlimited adventure. Hundreds of miles of grassy valleys, mountain vistas, rocky canyons and sparkling streams await you to explore by foot, bike or in true old west style on horseback. Rock climb the highest peaks of Wyoming, cast a fly on the Shoshone River, river raft the wild waters of Clarks Fork or surrender to the quiet in the spectacular Shoshone National Forest. Winter presents snowy landscapes with great family skiing at the Sleeping Giant Ski Resort. The Wood River Valley Ski Touring Park offers 25k of groomed cross country trails through forests and wilderness, back-country trails and a warming hut at the trailhead. Those with an adventurous spirit can strap on their crampons and try ice climbing on one of the many frozen waterfalls. Escape on a scenic drive loop of panoramic mountain vistas as you head towards the eastern gate of Yellowstone National Park for even more outdoor adventures.
“Preferred Gateway to Yellowstone”
Cody lies only 50 miles away from the pristine wilderness of Yellowstone National Park and is a preferred gateway to America’s oldest National Park. A great destination from which to explore the many natural wonders of Yellowstone and the nearby Grand Teton National Park.
But the West of the old times, with its strong characters, its stern battles and its tremendous stretches of loneliness, can never be blotted from my mind – Buffalo Bill
