Sitting just 52 miles from the east entrance of the Yellowstone National Park, Cody is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and those planning to spend some time exploring the infamous nearby park. Cody has deep roots in western history and lore. This historic town was actually founded by Colonel William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody in 1896. When you’re strolling through the downtown core, you may recognize the names of some of the streets as the names of the men that accompanied Buffalo Bill in his quest to turn Cody into his home.
When you fly into the jet charter airport in Cody, you’ll have immediate access to some of the best recreational activities in the state.
For a little excitement, visit Kirwin Ghost Town. Here you’ll discover a few remaining buildings. You can choose to drive there in a 4WD vehicle or an ATV. You may even spot a ghost or two!
Tour through all five museums at Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Each museum offers an inside glimpse into different periods of the wild, wild west. If your itinerary doesn’t allow time to see all five, we recommend visiting the Cody Firearms Museum over the others. Here you’ll be able to explore more than 4,000 firearms on display.
And last but not least. If you’re in the area, you’d be missing out if you didn’t stop in at the Yellowstone National Park. The Upper Loop will take you to epic waterfalls, beautiful passes and clear creeks. If seeing the Old Faithful geyser is on your bucket list, be sure to tour the Lower Loop.
