  • Hire a car

    Wyoming is a very empty state and public transport links aren’t good, so you really do need a car to get around. If you don’t live within driving distance you’ll need to hire one. We used Alamo who we’ve used several times before – the rates are good though the downside can be that their lot is often a long way from the airport terminal. For this...

  • Wyoming is one big state

    Wyoming is a big state that pretty much requires you to drive your own vehicle. Mass transit is spotty at best and getting around individual national parks necessitate some type of transportation due to their immense sizes.Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone are fairly close together in the northwestern part of the state, only 100 miles or...

  • Flying to Wyoming

    While Wyoming has several airports, none of them is a major international hub and most visitors from overseas will probably find, as we did, that it’s easier and cheaper to fly to an airport in a neighbouring state and drive from there. The best options for convenience and choice of flights seemed to be Salt Lake City and Denver, and after shopping...

  • You've almost got to have a car

    The American West is BIG and a lot of the sights are far away from each other. You pretty much have to have a car. Unless you're part of some organized tour group by bus, sort of thing.

  • Road Closure

    From early fall to late spring it might happen that roads in Wyoming have to be closed because of winter weather conditions. On the picture shown here I was in Cheyenne and wanted to go back to Laramie. That wasn't possible because of the results of a snowstorm - or in other words: a new layer of 8 inches of snow. The Interstate was closed and all...

  • Don't drive too fast

    Did anybody say public transportation? What's that? Something that does almost not exist in Wyoming. The photo shows my old Jeep Cherokee. I drove 34,000 miles in two years with that car. It was a very emotional moment for me when I had to sell it before going back to Germany. The paper below my car is a speeding ticket. I was 4 miles too fast. No...

  • Plane to Jackson Hole, WY

    If coming to the Northern regions of Wyoming your best bet is to fly into Jackson Hole, WY. It is quite an experience to fly over the Grand Tetons and drop into the valley. In Jackson, you can rent a vehicle to explore Dubois, Lander, Yellowstone National Park, or the many other places located in this part of the state.

  • I flew into Salt Lake City and...

    I flew into Salt Lake City and rented a car from the airport. I made sure it had unlimited mileage on it. From there I drove just across the border into Nevada, then headed north back up into northern Utah. Spent the night in Logan, Utah, then headed up to Jackson on Hwy 89. Spent a couple of nights in Jackson, then headed to Waipiti, WY (between...

    The closest major or International Airport is Salt Lake City, Utah. All the major airlines fly into Salt Lake. There are closer smaller airports in or near the gateway cities. You can rent vehicles at Salt Lake or any of these airports. The following airports are listed according to their proximity to Yellowstone. Cody, Wyoming Jackson Hole,...

    Flying Js rule!!!Come on, people! You know you love Flying J plazas as much as me. After all, where as can you color a felt poster while talking on the phone at your table waiting for your food, then take a shower after you're done there? LOL

  • By plane from the towns of...

    By plane from the towns of Idaho Falls, Bozeman, Billings, Jackson Hole or further south from Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City can be a less expensive alternative both in terms of airfare and rental car rates. Salt Lake City can be a good alternative if you want make a circle trip and visit places like Idaho, Montana, Yellowstone and the Grand...

  • Flew into the airport at...

    Flew into the airport at Billings, Montana. The airport is on a bluff higher than the city so it got fogged in when it was time for me to fly out. I flew out from the smaller airport at Cody, Wyoming. Next time I think I will try to fly straight in to Cody and back again because it is closer to the things I wanted to see.Wyoming is a big state and...

  • You can travel to Wyoming by...

    You can travel to Wyoming by car, bus, or air.Once you are in Wyoming you really nead a car to get a good idea of what Wyoming is like. Drive out into an area that is not well traveled and get out of your car. Enjoy the vast aloneness that only a state like Wyoming can offer.
