In a recent piece put together by US News and World Report, readers and travelers were asked to recommend their top spots to visit and stay across the U.S. and Wyoming has two of those spots within its borders.

Maui jumped 6 spots and dropped last years #1 to #2. That is Yellowstone National Park. Others listed include places like Chicago, San Francisco, The Grand Canyon, Yosemite and New York, but also sneaking in at the #14 spot is Jackson Hole.

With 2 of the top spots it is no surprise that we have seen an increase of travelers thru the gates of Yellowstone and across the Cowboy State in 2014.
