Planning The Best Road Trips Through Wonderful Wyoming
There are the big places, like Yellowstone National Park and The Grand Tetons.
But there is so much to the rest of the state.
Actually - it's a good plan for people who live in the state, too.
These attractions are usually missed by most people.
So lets plan a couple of highway roadtrips that will pick up some of the places that most people miss.
We can't name them all - there is too much to see.
A few of the attractions on the list include:
Or, head north to the town of Sheridan. From there go a little more north and find highway 14 over the Bighorn Mountains. Either highway is an adventure.
Hot Springs County Museum & Cultural Center, Thermopolis, WY
A really great museum with a whole lot of history! You get to go up to the original bar where the outlaws from the Hole-In-The-Wall Gang once sat. You also get to walk around the “old town of Thermopolis” recreation which makes you feel like you've wandered back in time.
Don't miss the Thermopolis Dinasuar Museum.
Driving to Thermopolis make plans to drive through:
Wind River Canyon
The Wind River Canyon is between the towns of Shoshoni and Thermopolis, and a great spot to drive through. Stop and take pictures and take in the view! You’ll get to see the layered formations, and sometimes even some bighorn sheep. It’s a beautiful drive and you get to go through a few tunnels along the way.
In the upper left hand corner of the state, just outside of Yellowstone:
Buffalo Bill Dam Cody, WY
Worth the stop! Such beautiful scenery, with a visitor center where you can learn more about the dam and there is also a souvenir shop. If you park in the parking lot, you’ll get a sweet little golf cart ride to the visitor center.
Devil's Tower is on the north east side of the state. Don't miss everything there is to do in the Black Hills.
The Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park are a week long trip all by themselves. You'll need another vacation to get all of that in.
