The people of Cody choose to live and work here because they can! Cody affords its residents the ability to step out after work and in just a few short minutes be fly fishing a superb trout stream, teeing off on a championship golf course, or taking a walk on any of the 8 miles of maintained trails in the community.

With over 50% of the state being public land, there is no shortage of access to recreation of all sorts! Bike trails, hiking trails, hunting areas, and so much more. And when you have more antelope than people in the whole state, crowds won’t be an issue.

In the summer, you can fly fish, hike, camp and explore within minutes of town. In the winter, Yellowstone’s East Gate closes down and offers up some of the best nordic skiing and remote backcountry opportunities within the Rockies.
