Cody, Wyoming

One of the most interesting places to stay in Cody is
the haunted Irma Hotel. Built and operated by
Buffalo Bill Cody himself, your chances of
encountering a ghost are good! For the story
of our stay in the Irma, go to Irma ghosts.
The town of Cody, Wyoming was founded in the mid-1890's by Buffalo Bill Cody and was incorporated in 1901. It is located just 52 miles from the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park (check out the Troll family in Yellowstone) and for a town of a little fewer than 10,000 residents, has some of the most extraordinary museums and historical attractions available anywhere.

Lil Dude Troll definitely enjoyed his stay in Cody and is ready to go back anytime!

Don't miss the excellent Buffalo Bill Historical Center.
5 museums in one, you can spend several days
exploring them.

Buffalo Bill's boyhood home which you can walk

If you have a hunger for Mexican food, Zapata's serves
huge portions of good food at reasonable prices.

For good hamburgers or drinks after a day of adventure
in Cody, you might want to try the famous
Silver Dollar Bar.
