If you’re looking for a taste of the Wild West, a town where Buffalo Bill himself once built and managed a hotel is a pretty good place to start.
The Sheridan Inn is in the heart of Sheridan County, and is every bit of a Wild West aficionado’s or hunting-loving, lodge-dweller’s dream. Once used as a place for Buffalo Bill to audition new members for his Wild West show, the hotel now offers 22 rooms available to visitors to Sheridan County. Make sure to stop by the Buffalo Bill Bar in the hotel for a stiff drink and to channel cowboys of days gone by.
A jet charter airport in Sheridan County doesn’t just take visitors to the heart of Wild West history, it also brings them to the edge of the formidable Bighorn Mountains. Four seasons of adventure are available on the mountains. Whether you’re hiking, biking or camping, the Bighorn Mountains has a trail or remote site for you. Ice climbers should be ready for a challenge when they arrive as this area has one of the largest concentrations of waterfall ice climbing in the nation.
The historic downtown is full of charming shops and restaurants ready to welcome visitors to Sheridan County. There may be a watering hole (or two) ready to quench the thirst of anyone who needs something a little stronger. History abounds even with a walk downtown as 46 local buildings are on the National Registry of Historic Places.
