Form the deserts to Yellowstone Wyoming is a very exciting state to explore. It offers rough and rugged outdoors traveling and great natural beauty. Jackson Hole is an ideal starting place to go to Grand Teton, Yellowstone, to go skiing or to enjoy one of the many other outdoor activities.

The state also has quite a few interesting historic sights. Most are related to the covered wagon emigration trails of the 19-th century. They all came together in Wyoming and several forts arose to meet the settlers' needs.

Many of these trails and forts can still be found in Wyoming, allowing 21st century visitors a unique opportunity to step back into the past. The actual wagon wheel ruts of the old trails can still be seen in many places. Modern highways also follow or parallel the trails, a testament to the skill of those early scouts and explorers who relied only on dead reckoning and the lay of the land to establish the covered wagon routes.

The lovers of museums should head for the capital city Cheyenne or to Cody. The Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, actually four in one complex, was tabbed by The New York Times as "The Smithsonian of the West." The Wyoming State Museum in Cheyenne which tells the stories of Wyoming's human and natural history and the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum, also in Cheyenne, showcases one of the world's largest and finest collections of horse-drawn vehicles. Art is also showcased at facilities like the University of Wyoming Art Museum in Laramie, the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, the Bradford Brinton Memorial in Big Horn, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson and the Charles Belden Museum in Meeteetse.
