One of the things visitor's say most often about Cody is "we had no idea there was so much to do here". And there is. The Cody Trolly Tour is a good way to get acquainted with the town and its history. The Buffalo Bill Historical Center is a must see. With five seperate museums under one roof, there is 300,000 square feet of western history including arts, guns, Indians, Buffalo Bill and Yellowstone. Cody is the "Rodeo Capital of the World" and has a rodeo each night all summer long. Old Trail Town and the Museum of the Old West are a trip back in time where you walk down boardwalks to an old saloon (complete with bullet holes), livery stables, grainery, general store, three hangouts used by the Hole in the Wall Gang and more. The Buffalo Bill Dam Visitor Center tells the history of the dam and Buffalo Bill's vision to bring water to the area. Every night except Sunday the street beside the Irma Hotel has an old time gunfight at 6 pm. Dan Miller's Cowboy Music Revue happens Monday through Saturday at 8 pm. For recreation - raft on the river, ride horses, climb mountains, mountain bike, fish, play golf, watch wild horses or watch wildlife. Cody is the hub for five spectacular scenic drives and is only 50 miles from the east entrance to Yellowstone. The downtown area has great shopping with western art galleries, western furniture, and western clothes.
There is no mall, just Walmart and no chain restaurants other than fast food. Bring a camera for the spectacular scenery and unique attractions.
