With the jagged peaks of the Grand
Tetons to offer, and the beloved Yellowstone
National Park, the state of Wyoming is a joy
to visit, if not just for these attractions.
Wyoming is a very scenic state, offering wide-open
high plains and picturesque soaring mountains.
There is a very western feel to Wyoming, and as
such, one of its nicknames is The Cowboy State.
In Wyoming, you can see some of the best natural
landscapes found anywhere in the country, and though
its cities may be small, you can still pursue a
number of rich urban attractions, from museums to
historical sites. Visitors to Wyoming can
choose from a variety of Wyoming hotels. Dude
Ranches, lodges, resorts and cabin rentals are just
some of the options for Wyoming hotels, and to save
some money, you might seek out vacation packages
that include discount Wyoming lodging. If
you are in Wyoming on a romantic getaway, the Wyoming
bed and breakfasts offer charming accommodations.
Hostels and chain motels are just some of the options
for Wyoming budget hotels. Book a stay at
one of the Wyoming hotels across the state and see
all that this beautiful state has to offer.
A good amount of visitors to Wyoming come to explore
Yellowstone National Park. The Yellowstone
cabins and Yellowstone hotels combine to make for
some of the best accommodations choices in the state,
and of course, they have you close to the famous Old
Faithful Geyser. Looking for discount
Wyoming lodging at the Yellowstone hotels is a good
idea, as sometimes you can find vacation packages.
Just east of Yellowstone, you might choose to stay
at one of the Cody hotels, if not during your Yellowstone
visit, then afterwards. One of the founding
members of the city of Cody was "Buffalo Bill" Cody, and here you
can visit the Buffalo
Bill Historical Center. Cody Trolley Tours
are a great way to explore town, and you might visit
any one of the city's 5 museums. South
of Yellowstone National Park is Grand Teton National
Park, and it is in the area that you will also find Jackson
Hole. The Jackson
Hole Mountain Ski Resort is among the top ski
resorts in the country, not only for its Teton Range
scenery, but also for its variety of trails.
The Jackson Hole hotels have among them some of
the best resorts in the state, and if you find a
Jackson Hole vacation package, you may be able to
secure discount Wyoming lodging at one of them.
The Jackson Hole hotels have options for every budget,
meaning you can enjoy this amazingly beautiful area
even if you are low on funds.
If perhaps you would like to drop in on a quaint
Wyoming western town, you might head to the southwest
part of the state to stay a few nights in Rock
Springs. You can visit Wyoming ranches
here, learn about the Rock Springs Massacre and
enjoy the nearby Flaming Gorge National Recreation
Area. The Wyoming hotels found here are mostly
of the chain brand variety, with some offering more
amenities than others. Those seeking Wyoming
budget hotels will do well in Rock Springs.
Across the state in the southeastern corner, is
the capital city of Cheyenne.
Cheyenne is also the largest city in the state,
and it is found just 100 miles north of Denver.
Cheyenne is a great city for learning about the
Frontier days, and you can take in Wyoming history
at the Frontier Days Old West Museum. In July,
celebrate your inner-Western character at Cheyenne's
Frontier Days festival. The hotels in
Cheyenne WY present a nice selection, allowing you
to find the right fit for your budget or taste.
There are luxury hotels in Cheyenne WY, as well
as options for Wyoming budget hotels. The
rates for the hotels in Cheyenne WY are generally
higher in the summer. Not far outside of Cheyenne
is the "Wild Wild West" town of Laramie.
Laramie is home of the University of Wyoming, and
between its historic sites and college town offerings,
it is a pleasant place to visit. The Laramie
hotels provide a diverse selection, making a Laramie
getaway all the more enjoyable.
About 180 miles northwest of Cheyenne is the state's
second largest city. Casper was a major stop for those traveling the Pony Express
Trail, and it also sits at the crossing point of
the Mormon and Oregon Trails. A wagon ride
or horse back trip with Historic Trails West is
a great way to learn about Casper and the area's
history. Fishing trips are among the most
popular Casper tours and day trips, and the Casper
hotels offer a variety in choices. For a change
of pace, try staying at one of the bed and breakfast
Casper hotels. When you stay at one of the
Casper hotels, you have access to nearby Cheyenne,
as well as countless acres of rivers and mountains.
As for northeast Wyoming, you might consider booking
a stay at one of the Wyoming hotels in either Sheridan or Gillette.
Sheridan has a city motto that reads, "Best
of the West", and you will certainly get a
feel for the West when you tour downtown Sheridan.
It is here in the summer that you will find the
Wyoming Rodeo. The Sheridan hotels have some
interesting options, such as a hunting lodge, or
a quaint bed and breakfast. In nearby Gillette,
the cowboy feel is just as strong as in Sheridan.
Among the top attractions here is the Thunder Basin
National Grassland. You can stay at one of
the Gillette hotels for access to this attraction,
as well as for the nearby Black Hills, which stretch
into neighboring South
Dakota. Wherever you go in Wyoming, be
sure to check out the options for Wyoming hotels
ahead of time if you can. For discount Wyoming
lodging, you might check for vacation packages,
or choose to visit some of these destinations outside
of their busy seasons. Book your room at one
