You can visit the Capitol Building and the State Museum to learn more about the area, before crossing the border into South Dakota and heading for Wind Cave National Park. One of the longest and most complex cave systems in the world, stop to admire the crazy formations inside – from frostwork to boxwork – and keep your eyes peeled for bison, elk and prairie dogs too.
Capture the carvings on camera, before visiting the Crazy Horse Memorial, into which the face of an Indian Chief is etched.
From the gaming halls and casinos to classic saloons, it’s a real time-warp, fused together with some modern outdoor activities: think rock climbing, hiking and ATVing. It’s also a great place for movie locations too; Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Dances with Wolves were both shot here.
The city itself is named after Colonel William Frederick Cody himself – aka ‘Buffalo Bill’. Here you can learn all about his life as a bison hunter and traditional showman and, if you’re visiting in early July, watch the Cody Stampede Rodeo.
Yellowstone National Park
It’s a truly stunning drive, interspersed with wildlife sightings and postcard-worthy landscapes aplenty. Park up your motorhome at the Grant Village Campground and spend your time here exploring the waterfalls, geothermal pools and geysers. Staring into Old Faithful as it shoots thousands of gallons of boiling water into the air is unmissable.
Grand Teton National Park
Soak up the striking mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes, peppered with abounding flora, fauna and wildlife. Outdoorsy types will feel right at home here, with biking, hiking, boating, climbing and horseback riding all possible.
Participate in a powwow, take in the museums for a taste of the local culture, and visit the grave sites of Sacajawea and Chief Washakie.
Now a State Historic Site, you can explore the prison and its cells, which once held notorious inmates like train and bank robber Butch Cassidy. Be sure to check out the American Heritage Center too, for an insight into the Rocky Mountain region and its past.
Our favourite thing to do here though, is discovering the incredible landscapes – stretched across 50 parks and over 280 miles of hiking and biking trails. Spend your final day relaxing and soaking up the culture, or making the most of the great outdoors.
