Cody is a cowboy town in northwest Wyoming. The Buffalo Bill Center of the West has 5 museums, including the Buffalo Bill Museum, tracing William F. Cody’s life with multimedia displays, and the Draper Natural History Museum, with wildlife exhibits. Nearby, Old Trail Town is a re-created frontier town with 1800s log cabins and a saloon. Buffalo Bill Scenic Byway winds past craggy cliffs to Yellowstone National Park. Many years ago, the families that ventured to the Rocky Mountains of Cody, Wyoming required skills of horsemanship and roping. In order to handle and manage livestock, settlers needed to know how to ride, rope, and tame wild stock. Today, this Wild West dexterity is still used on working ranches in Wyoming. Thanks to showman Buffalo Bill Cody’s entertaining twist on these herding skills, Cody is now known as the Rodeo Capital of the World. Here are a few of the popular Rodeo events that have made Cody The Rodeo Capital Of The World: CODY STAMPEDE RODEO The Cody Stampede July 1–4, attracts cowboys from across North America to compete for big purses, and ride the best rodeo stock in the country.
