It's Christmas in Cody!

Christmas in Cody, Wyoming

I'll start with a favorite of Angie's and our kids. It's not as fancy as you'd see in the big city but this home is a local favorite. They seem to add a little more each year and we have fun looking for the new additions. It plays 7-8 different songs with The Grinch being a family favorite. Enjoy!

 

Another favorite is a local business, Cody Trolley Tours, owned and operated by Greg Pendley. In the summer time the Trolley takes visitors through a tour of the historic town of CoCody Wyoming Trolley Toursdy, Wyoming, founded by William "Buffalo Bill" Cody in 1901. In the winter our city holds a contest for the best Christmas decorations. Locals are taken on a guided tour with the Trolley and allowed to vote on their favorites.

For the more adventurous party crowd, the Trolley can be rented for groups of 40. These private tours typically involves large groups of women, copious amounts of wine, and dancing on the streets!

Because of our history and small-town culture, Cody has some unique ways of celebrating Christmas that you won't find anywhere else. For example, visit "Old Trail Town" with a collection of historic cabins like Butch Cassidy's hideout or the grave site of Jeremiah "Liver-Eating" Johnson!

The Irma Hotel, named after Buffalo Bill's daughter, is a local favorite for Christmas parties! The picture on the left shows the annual Christmas parade in front of the Irma Hotel. The picture on the right is the Irma Hotel Governor's Room. Governor Al Simpson is a local and a favorite of Wyomingites!

We hope you've enoyed this small taste of small-town America. If you are ever heading to Yellowstone National Park, we hope you'll swing through Cody to see our many wonderful sites and our friendly people!

Wyoming is one of those yearning places...I haven't had the pleasure of seeing yet. 

I happen to LOVE that first photo! A future Tuesday Travelogue must. Please keep those localism posts and photos coming!
