Yellowstone Country, WY

Yellowstone Country, WY is one of the most breathtaking spots in the world in any season, with beautiful sunny weather even in the dead of winter. Tucked up against the famous Yellowstone Park, visitors and locals alike enjoy the spectacular vistas and abundant wildlife the area is known for. Tourists looking for a Visitors Guide or brochures to local sights can swing by the Cody Chamber of Commerce, or they can simply plan their trip online. With autumn in full swing and winter fast approaching, there are a variety of upcoming popular cold-weather activities that families and individuals alike can enjoy.

For those with little ones looking for more structured activities the Lions Club turkey day is coming up in late November, just prior to Thanksgiving, and features plenty of turkey themed games for kids. Immediately after Thanksgiving Yellowstone Country swings into the holiday season with “An Old Trail Town Christmas,” Santa’s Workshop, and a Christmas parade.

There are also year-round tours that visitors can take, such as the trolley tour of Cody or the nearby river float tour. An historic walking tour is a fun option for more active visitors. Anyone who enjoys receiving a little fright with their history – especially with Halloween on the horizon – will love taking a tour of the local ghost town, Arland. The Trail Town Cemetery is another popular macabre stop for tourists.

Nature lovers should spend at least a day exploring Yellowstone Park. There are horseback riding tours of the perimeter offered, as well as local nature tours. Fishing, hiking and camping are all popular activities that can be done independent of any guide or group.

Art lovers and history buffs will have plenty to do as well. There are multiple art galleries in Cody, and a myriad of museums. One of the most popular is the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

Whether a fan of indoor entertainment or the grand outdoors, Yellowstone Country has something for everyone. Whether young or old, single or coupled up, fun and adventures await. So why wait to visit?
