Some of the country’s best national parks sit in northwest Wyoming so you’ll need to plan at least several days of adventures exploring this region. Yellowstone National Park is one of the most-visited destinations of the region and you can also enjoy some spectacular landscapes and scenic sites around Grand Teton National Park. Both parks are ideal for enjoying nature at its best, hiking, fishing, and birdwatching.
Northwest Wyoming is also home to several museums and cultural centers where you can learn about Native American culture, see works of art from days gone by, and explore old western towns. Cody is one of the few western towns left in the United States and you can take a tour of historical sites and geological landmarks to learn more about the Old West.Enter text here
