Wyoming Mini Guide
How do I get into Wyoming?
Wyoming’s biggest airport, Jackson Hole, doesn’t have any international flights that land there. All travellers to the state will need to book a flight to one of the country’s major Midwest or western airports and connect there. The best ones are Dallas Fort Worth
, Chicago O’Hare
or Salt Lake City
airports. The airport is in the middle of Grand Teton National Park and the airport operators have had to be sensitive to the conservation area of the park. For this reason, transport options from the airport are limited and the best ways of getting to your accommodation is by pre-booked hire car. This then allows you the freedom to explore the national parks in Wyoming as well as visiting the cities.
What is There to see in Wyoming?
You can try to spot film sets. From the Devil’s Tower National Monument seen at the end of Close Encounters, the mountains of Brokeback Mountain or the scenery in The Horse Whisperer you’ll be entranced. The state’s two main national parks will keep you occupied for several days too. Spend some time watching the mud pools and geysers in Yellowstone or try climbing in Grand Teton. The state was home to Buffalo Bill Cody and you can find out more about him in the museum dedicated to his Wild West show in the city that takes his name, Cody. Fort Laramie is also a great place to learn about the people that spread west to populate Wyoming but who came into conflict with the resident Native American population.
