The Wyoming mountain city of Cody is a small, culturally rich community which began as a Wild West trapper town. Named after William Cody (better known as Buffalo Bill) much of Cody’s tourism is driven by the city’s wealth of historic buildings, artefacts and heritage attractions. Discover an old Wild West ghost town, dine out in rustic style, or just get those walking boots on and explore Wyoming’s two beautiful National Parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton. If you love a secluded getaway and scenic mountains views, then this pretty Wyoming backwater is the place for you.
Old Trail Town — A visit to this living museum is liking stepping into a real western. Complete with saloons and tumbleweed, the unique historic town recreates the old west with cabins used by the likes of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Over twenty shops, dwellings and dozens of horse-drawn carts make it perfect for a family day out.
Sheridan Avenue — Despite its small size, Cody has a flourishing restaurant trade. You’ll find all the eateries you could need close to Cody’s Sheridan Avenue. Tuck into some steak (this is the wild west after all) or discover Cody’s international cuisine with a bite of Italian, Chinese or Mexican food.
Buffalo Bill State Park — Home to the Buffalo Bill Reservoir and Dam, this lush rural park offers a glimpse of the Wild West as it must have appeared in days gone by. A popular summer camping spot, it’s well equipped for fishing and picnicking, and you won’t find a better place to enjoy a blushing mountain sunset.
Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks — Undoubtedly the feathers in Wyoming’s cap, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks offer expansive lakes, rushing rivers, crashing waterfalls, sheer mountain drops and geothermal vents that will take your breath away. These unspoiled wonders are an absolute must-see.
Cody has definitely escaped the footprint of urbanisation and the city has changed little over the years. A walk around offers many chances for a unique snap. Take a self-guided tour of Grand Teton, setting off from central Cody, or head on a driving tour of Yellowstone National Park’s lower and upper loops. A driving tour is an excellent way to see the unique wonders of this geologically active region. The rock formations, rivers, valleys and geysers will definitely keep your camera ticking over!
Cody’s main attraction is the Buffalo Bill Centre of the West. With five museums under one roof, you’ll be spoiled for choice here. You might also want to take the family to Old Trail Town, to get a feel for Buffalo Bill’s original frontier. While the city’s heritage sites and Wyoming’s picturesque landscape certainly present many opportunities to get active, Cody isn’t without more creative gems. Built by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Quintin Blair House was designed to blend into Wyoming’s unique landscape. See it for yourself and you’ll agree that it succeeds splendidly.
