Trip Planner USA  /  Wyoming  /  Cody

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. Founded by Old West showman "Buffalo Bill" Cody and known to many as the "Preferred Gateway to Yellowstone," Cody sits in the northwestern part of Wyoming in an area packed with dude ranches offering visitors an authentic "Wild West" experience. The area's scenic byways provide nature lovers with a chance to sightsee through a rugged landscape filled with native wildlife, while the town's walkable downtown features not only popular gunfight reenactments, but also several fine restaurants, art galleries, and shops. Our United States tourist route planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Cody

Cody may be a cowboy town, but its accommodations include everything from plush hotels to modern bed and breakfasts. For an ultimate "Wild West" experience, try to arrange a stay at a rustic mountain cabin or a working ranch just outside the city. If you wish to avoid the crowds or simply need more of your own space, reserve one of the city's Victorian rental homes. Cody's value motels allow you to stay more economically; they make up in mountain views what they lack in amenities.
