William F. (“Buffalo Bill”) Cody laid out the original townsite of Cody, Wyoming, which was named in his honor, and now we enjoy all that his vision has to offer. Don’t miss a visit to Old Trail Town near the Cody Stampede Rodeo, not far from the Buffalo Bill Dam & Reservoir and the thriving and exciting downtown HIP District “Historic and Interesting Places,” the east gateway city to Yellowstone National Park!
The HIP District is surrounded by rugged mountains as well as Village Cody, with its beautifully restored cottages. For shoppers, there are apparel stores offering western fashions; art galleries; restaurants; and several unique coffee shops with outdoor seating. Some of the city’s most enjoyable hotels are located here, such as the historic Irma, Chamberlain Inn, and many more. There’s a neighborhood bookstore, florists, jewelry stores, home décor and much more. Pamper yourself with the many spas offering massages or enjoy a workout amidst the quaint feel of Cody. Also, Cody is near the world’s largest thermal mineral hot springs, Thermopolis, that offers fun and relaxation for the entire family. There’s access to Cody’s many nearby hiking, fishing and camping spots as well as including stadium seating to view world-famous rodeo riders and performers at the Cody Stampede Rodeo.
Scattered throughout the District are some of Cody’s popular or earliest buildings including Cassie’s, The Buffalo Bill Center of the West museums and the Bill Cody Ranch.
