Favorite thing: If you plan to be in Cody at least a day, and enjoy museums, then the Buffalo Bill Historical Center is a must. Photo 2 shows a statue that may be seen near the Historical Center--many people like to have their picture, or their children's photo taken standing next to this statue. Photo 3 shows a bronze titled Washakie, Chief of the Shoshone, a bronze by R.V. Greeves created 1999. This Statue may be seen in the yard of the Historical Center.
Another very unique and must see museum is Old Trail Town. If you enjoy learning about the history of the old west and plan to be in Cody for more than a day don't miss this gem.
Take time to walk along Sheridan Avenue, the main downtown street of Cody. Stop and look in some of the local Indian shops and art galleries. Some of these stores have excellent quality items.
Fondest memory: Some of my fondest memores are watching the sunset over Carter and Cedar Mountains, visiting the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, and wandering through Old Trail Town. Watching Big Horn Sheep out the South Fork of the Shoshone River in the winter, and grizzly bears along the North Fork of the Shoshone River in the spring. Camping at Big Game Campground along the North Fork and watching beavers working on their home near-by. One time in a late fall we camped in another National Forest campground close to Yellowstone and watched a large buffalo come into the campground and scratch his sides against a picnic table.
Working out at our wonderful 'Quad Center' may or may not be fun, but it is a great way to stay in shape.---Out of towners welcome. Two great swimming pools, exercise equipment, racketball, basketball, therapy pool, hot tub.

Favorite thing: Hmmmm, so you are walking around downtown exploring the shops and galleries when you feel a need to look for a bathroom. Or you have small children and they have to use a toilet NOW. Well in down town Cody you are in luck! Being a tourist town Cody realized that it would be a convenience to shoppers to have a Public Restroom available. Be aware that the doors to these restrooms are very heavy, so don’t send your small child up the stairs to use the bathrooms by him or herself. The child may not be able to open the door, so may assume that the door is locked and someone else is using it. You don’t want to stand around waiting for someone to come out who isn’t really there. So give the door a good tug, and if unsure simply knock. If no one answers, pull harder. These restrooms may be found on Sheridan Avenue in the 1300 block next to the Plush Pony, a woman’s clothing store, and on the opposite side of the street from the Silver Dollar Bar.

Favorite thing: This picture is the first site of the city of Cody Trail Town. Many old buildings and at the end of the town is where the famous Jeremiah Johnson is burried.
