Founded with the help of Colonel William Frederick “Buffalo Bill” Cody, Cody Wyoming is located 52 miles from Yellowstone National Park’s east entrance. For over 100 years, the Cody Nite Rodeo and Cody Stampede Rodeo have been a focal point of summers in Cody, Wyoming. These two events are two of the longest running successful professional rodeos, and Cody remains the only place in the world that holds a nightly rodeo.
Today, Cody is what America was, a place where the cowboy culture thrives and where the new west begins. The vistas are spectacular, the land is wild, the people are genuinely friendly and the opportunities for outdoor adventure, recreation, education and entertainment are as large and varied as the Wyoming skies.
