What are the most unique towns in Wyoming?
Some of the most unique towns in Wyoming include Thermopolis, Buffalo, Sheridan, and Cody. Thermopolis is the seat of Hot Springs County. The town itself is the dinosaur capital of the region, and it sits on the world’s largest mineral hot spring. Buffalo is a historic mountain town with a lot of Wild West history! Sheridan still maintains a lot of its past, including the downtown area that looks like it’s straight out of the past. In Cody, you’ll find a blend of history and modern development that makes for one of the most welcoming and unique towns in the state.
Can I hike to historical sites in Wyoming?
There are a lot of historical sites in Wyoming that can be accessed by foot. The state’s first “roadside attraction”, Ayres Natural Bridge, is just a short walk from the parking area and worth exploring. You can also hike around Independence Rock, Fossil Butte, and Devils Tower. For historical sites in Wyoming that aren’t natural wonders, visit the Chapel of the Transfiguration and the TA Moulton Barn, both located near short trailheads in Grand Teton National Park
Are there any ghost towns in Wyoming?
Wyoming is full of ghost towns! Visit Gebo to find a haunted ghost town, or head to South Pass City to step back in time to a historic rebuilt town. Atlantic City is more population than most “ghost towns”, thanks to a community dedicated to preservation and its proximity to the Continental Divide trail. In Kirwin, you can visit the town that was meant to be Amelia Earhart’s vacation home. The town did not last long, though, and an avalanche changed away most residents.
