Discover the State of Wyoming

Discover Wyoming, USA

Hundreds of thousands of tourists flock to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming every year. Why? Between exploding geysers like Old Faithful, the diverse wildlife and the gorgeous canyons, visitors are completely captivated. Yellowstone, the first and oldest national park in the world, has preserved numerous geological wonders - there are more geysers and hot springs in the park than in the rest of the world combined.

Another striking natural attraction is Devils Tower in northeast Wyoming. The Tower and the surrounding 1,347 acres were designated as the nation's first National Monument in 1906. If you're an experienced rock climber looking for a challenge, you'll find it on the vertical walls of Devils Tower.

Wyoming's history is rich with the pioneering spirit. Numerous historic sites dating back to the days of the Oregon Trail, such as Independence Rock and Fort Laramie, are also located throughout the state.

Business travelers will find meeting space for large or small gatherings in Gillette, Cheyenne and Sheridan. The best thing about doing business in Wyoming is the distinct down-home atmosphere you feel while exploring its cities and surrounding regions, all set in gorgeous natural landscapes.

Just across the continental divide from Yellowstone National Park lies Wind River Country, Wyoming. You can fish 2,000 miles of alpine streams, hike up 53 mountain peaks over 13,000', watch cowboys on bucking broncos, dance at Native American Pow Wows, poke around real ghost towns, or explore millions of acres of pristine wilderness. And with only a few more people per square mile than antelope, you are guaranteed an uncrowded experience.

Historical Notes: One of the earliest explorers of Wyoming was John Colter in 1807. While exploring the Rocky Mountains, he discovered a region of steaming geysers and towering water falls so unusual that his written reports nicknamed the area "Colter's Hell." The same area, in 1872, was set aside forever as a place to be enjoyed by everyone. It became known as Yellowstone, the world's first National Park.
