Preferred Gateway to Yellowstone

A genuine cowboy city, Cody is famous for its nightly rodeos and its proximity to the protected wilderness areas of the world's first national park, now designated as one of the country's World Heritage Sites.
On the 6th (Tue), learn more about the world around you at Draper Natural History Museum, admire the masterpieces at Whitney Western Art Museum, and then explore the landscape on two wheels at Paul Stock Nature Trail. Here are some ideas for day two: take an in-depth tour of Historic Cody Mural and Museum, stop by Wayne's Boot Shop, then admire the majestic nature at Buffalo Bill State Park, then admire the sheer force of The Buffalo Bill Reservoir, and finally steep yourself in history at Old Trail Town.
