The City of Cody, Wyoming, on the east boundary of Yellowstone National Park, was established in 1896 by world famous hunter, scout, and showman William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody. In the years that have followed, Cody has developed into a favorite Western destination for travelers from all over the world.

Cody is the American West. The culture lives on in the toughness and commitment of the rodeo cowboys who have made Cody, Wyoming “The Rodeo Capital of the World.” Cody exemplifies the New West as well as the Old.

On the surface, Cody may appear as a quaint little tourist town.  Dig deeper and you’ll find a connection between the people that choose to call Cody their home and their synergistic relationship with their surroundings. 

You’ll see that trailblazing spirit is still very much alive 120 years after our original frontiersman, ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody, had the foresight to realize how much this place would have to offer for generations to come.
