Cody Wyoming Local Area Guide near Yellowstone Park: Things to do / Activities / Attractions

The past is always present in Cody Country. This part of Wyoming represents the last of the true West. Cody is what America was, a place where the cowboy culture thrives and where the new west begins. 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 varied as the Wyoming skies. 

Cody Country has a well developed hospitality industry with varied lodging opportunities, fine dining, world class museums and western activities. We are 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 Scenic Byways.
