Your arrival coincides with their annual Frontier Days, the “World’s Largest Outdoor Rodeo and Western Celebration.” Enjoy a Behind the Chutes Tour to get a look at what goes on behind the scenes at the rodeo. Next, take your reserved seat at Cheyenne’s world-class rodeo. Later, you are treated to dinner and live cowboy entertainment at the Bit-O-Wyo Dinner Show. The chuckwagon line serves up the finest cowboy steaks and the wranglers offer up a helping of music and comedy. Day three begins with a plate of hot pancakes and special Cheyenne “howdy” at the annual Pancake Breakfast where over 100,000 flap-jacks are served every year. Next, climb aboard the Cheyenne Trolley for a narrated tour of this Old West town. You’ll see the historic Depot Buildings, a National Landmark and see where many gunfights occurred as well as the spot where Wild Bill Hickok was married. Later, head out to Terry Bison Ranch Resort where you climb aboard the train for a ride out to the middle of the ranch’s bison herd. Then, it’s back to the ranch for a tasty dinner served up Western style. Day four departing Cheyenne you skirt Medicine Bow National Forest and cross the expanse of the Great Divide Basin of Wyoming. Nearing Shoshone National Forest, the Wind River Range of the Rocky Mountains come into view. You will stop at the National Bighorn Interpretive Center to learn about these fascinating creatures, which live in the nearby mountains. Later, arrive in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Dinner tonight is at Dornan’s Resort on the banks of the Snake River. Day five enjoy the spectacular vistas of the Grand Teton Mountains as you float down the Snake River. Day six travel the Rockefeller Memorial Parkway into magnificent Grand Teton National Park. In Yellowstone National Park, stop at storied Old Faithful Geyser, named for its regular eruptions about every 80 to 90 minutes. Next, explore Norris Geyser Basin, filled with an incredible variety of steam vents, mud pots, geysers, and hot springs. Continue on to the awesome 1,200 foot-deep Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, including views from Inspiration and Lookout Points. Later, arrive at your hotel in Cody, Wyoming. Day seven visit the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center to learn about the internment of the Japanese-Americans that were confined here during WWII. Then, return to Cody for free time.
