    Step back in time to the old west of the 1890’s at Old Trail Town. Its well worth the visit where you will be transported back in time to the rough and tumble old west. Whilst you are in his town, you have to visit the Buffalo Bill Museum. From June through to the end of August you can experience the Cody Nite Rodeo which provides 2 hours of real wild western family friendly action.

    Cody/Yellowstone Country is a natural habitat for wildlife. You can view buffalo, deer, moose, elk, grizzly bears, black bears and more on any of the beautiful trails.

    Fishing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, biking, horse riding are just to name a few of the summer activities in and around Cody. In winter skiing, snowmobiling, ice climbing are a must. If you are not the adventurous type, experience the Yellowstone National Park in the warmth and comfort of a snow coach.
