What You Didn’t Know About Cody
Cody has been named “the 7th best historical small town” and its inhabitants are very proud of its rich history and culture that take the tourists back to a gone era, which has left its footprint on the town until today.
Cody is not only founded by one of the world’s most famous cowboys, William Cody aka Buffalo Bill. It’s located at the very heart of the Buffalo Bill Center in the West, the most comprehensive western museum there is, according to Adventure Outdoors Magazine.
Take a tour through the city and experience first hand where the local gangs used to hang out or visit Cody Nite Rodeo, which has earned Cody its nickname “Rodeo Capital of the World, but is actually an amateur rodeo which takes place every night between the 1st of June and the 31st of August.
Flourishing Tourism and Artistic Sceneries
Cody thrives on its tourism and is dependent of people visiting and buying into its culture and all attractions. The town isn’t only home for cowboys and buffalo hunters, the artist Jackson Pollock has also been living there and Cody is famous for its art scene as well. Cody offers its visitors everything from live theatre to wide screen cinemas and spectacular galleries. There’s also a “sip and paint”-studio where you can paint your own memories from Wyoming while sipping on a glass of wine. The studio is called Buffalo Jump Winery’s Sip & Paint.
Anytime, for Everyone
Cody is a great place to visit all year round and has something for everyone. If you want to get closer to the nature, spend a day visiting the Yellowstone National Park and experience bears, buffalos and other wild animals up close. Another idea is to go water rafting or skiing in the mountains.
