Cody Travel Guide
Welcome to Cody!
One of Wyoming's gateways to Yellowstone National Park, Cody has plenty of reasons for people to come and visit. Founded by the legendary Colonel William Buffalo Bill Cody, the frontier town bears his name and boasts several sites in his honor, one of which is the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. With five museums under one roof, most of the artifacts of the town's wild past are found here. Cody offers plenty of action to compliment its western roots, such as the Cody Stampede Rodeo, featuring cowboys, cowgirls, parades, rodeo entertainers and clowns. There are numerous guest ranches, camping areas, trail rides and other activities to satisfy outdoor enthusiasts. Because it is an hour from Yellowstone, Cody is a great place to stay before heading out sightseeing, rock climbing and kayaking. In the winter, Sleeping Giant Ski Hill is open for business, with 17 runs ready for all levels of skiers. Accommodations are plentiful and range from hotels to secluded mountain lodges.
As the first and oldest National Park in the world, Yellowstone's 2 million-plus acres are visited by more than 4 million people annually.
