We awoke to the smell of the crisp mountain air and moseyed out of our “glamping” tent to greet the day. We ventured out for a horseback ride with some of the folks we met the night before at the cookout. Our guides so graciously extended our ride since we missed out the night before. We were continuously impressed at how accommodating our hosts were!
Our love for the American West–and particularly places like Cody, Wyoming–runs deep all year long. That’s why we’ve rounded up seven of the best ways to experience a Cody’s wide-open spaces this winter. Located just east of Yellowstone National Park and founded by William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, it’s no wonder this western town is a treasure-trove of outdoor activity, making ‘natural distance’ easy. We think you’ll find there’s something fun for the whole family, no matter what the forecast says!
It’s one thing to see bison on the shoulder of the road; it’s something entirely different to stand on the shoulder of the road, hearing and seeing a pack of wolves communicate over your head. This is the difference between a self-directed tour and a guided Yellowstone wildlife tour.
I like to have room to breathe when I travel. For me, sharing a viewing platform with 50 other people doesn’t feel special; I’m trying to escape the seething mass of humanity, not meld with it. In the past, I thought I’d only find this space in the most remote parts of the American Midwest – but I was wrong. You can find your room to breathe in Wind River Country, Fremont County, Wyoming.
Who else feels like it’s high time for a vacation? For those of us traveling with the kiddos, what’s better than a place that caters to the relaxation needs of the adults, and the fun, playful spirits of the kids? Immerse yourself in the healing waters of the world’s largest mineral hot springs Wyoming, where family fun meets ultimate relaxation: Thermopolis.
The fascinating geology of your Yellowstone experience certainly doesn’t end at the park gate. With 360-degree views, you can see all of Dubois, as well as three types of mountain building processes (volcanic, tectonic, glacial) from the town overlook.

Whether you’re looking for somewhere with less humidity, cooler temperatures, or just more water to jump in, we’ve put together this list of places that are perfect for summer travel!
I have lived in Wyoming my entire life, besides a year long stint in Idaho. Unfortunately, I can count on one hand the times I have been to Yellowstone National Park. My husband was set to deploy with the military the first week of July, 2019. On June 28th, 2019 I got the harebrained idea that we were going to have one last “Hurrah” and take a family camping trip to Yellowstone.
Just an hour drive from the Yellowstone north entrance, Livingston, Montana is something out of an old-fashioned western fairytale. The small town is nestled between four stunning mountain ranges and lies alongside the Yellowstone River. From historic hotels and local beef dinners to world-class fishing and waterfall hikes, Livingston is easily one of the best year-round options for a home base when visiting Yellowstone National Park.
