When I mention I live in Cody, Wyoming, people are interested and wonder what there is to see and do here. Many think it is just a town you fly into or drive through to get to Yellowstone. They have no idea what a great place it is. I decided it is time for the Top 11 reasons to visit Cody/Yellowstone Country!
1. Amazing Scenery – We have everything from the most remote wilderness in the lower 48, sage brush deserts, rivers, lush valleys and Yellowstone National Park. There are two spectacular scenic drives outside of Cody, the Beartooth All-American Road and the North Fork Highway. Both are considered to be some of the most scenic drives in America.
2. History - Be sure to jump on the Cody Trolley to learn more about Buffalo Bill and a tour of the area’s historical sites, geology, wildlife and old and new west attractions. In an hour, you will get a hundred years of history! Visit the Cody Mural Visitors Center to learn about the Mormon pioneer’s life in the Big Horn Basin. Tecumseh’s Old West Miniature Village and Museum is a great treasure with a huge diorama of Wyoming and western history.
