Wyoming Travel Guide


Overview

Wyoming is a natural paradise for both outdoor adventurers and more passive sightseers. The Grand Teton Range’s rugged, towering summits become rolling foothills and eventually wide grassy plains in the eastern region of the state. The rugged landscape of the Wyoming Rockies offers world famous skiing activities and snowboarding, and the challenging Snake River Canyon is popular for kayaking, whitewater rafting and mountain biking. The Rockies are home to world-famous Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. The town of Jackson and inviting Jackson Hole Valley are nearby. In east Wyoming, the country’s first National Monument, Devil’s Tower, draws rock climbers from around the world.  Wyoming’s frontier heritage is on display all over the state in museums, and head to Fossil Butte to experience a real archaeological dig for fossils in the desert.

Cheyenne, the state capital, has a rich history and plenty of modern entertainment. The annual Frontier Days are a popular event, celebrating the city’s cowboy and pioneer heritage with a week-long rodeo and festival with live music performances, carnival rides and interesting exhibits. The restored Cheyenne Depot features a number of interesting railroad exhibits and the Big Boy, the world’s largest operating steam engine.  A leisurely walking tour of the city will allow visitors to enjoy the Capitol Building’s gilded dome and Cattle Baron Row, a neighborhood of magnificently decadent mansions built on historical cattle industry profits. The city provides a number of cultural venues and live music and theater performances throughout the year.

The Rocky Mountains are the most popular vacation destination in the state, due to such fantastic attractions as Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Jackson Hole Mountain Ski Resort. The towering peaks and raging rivers in this region are awe-inspiring, and are best explored via horseback from one of Wyoming’s accommodating guest ranches. This mountainous region is truly an outdoor playground, and visitors enjoy skiing, snowboarding, fishing, rock climbing, and more. Several of the small mountain villages are steeped in rich pioneer history. The city of Jackson is famous as the portal to both Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks, and the city itself is a flourishing cultural venue and a beautiful base from which to explore the surrounding area. Snowmobile tours and dogsled excursions are favorite wintertime activities. The annual Jackson Hole Scottish Festival draws visitors with Scottish food, Celtic music and a variety of entertainment. Another fun festival nearby is the Teton County Fair with its rodeo, dog shows, pig wrestling and live entertainment acts.
