Cody is surrounded by stunning scenery that shifts from cloudless summer landscapes, vibrant autumn forestry, to snowy mountainous backdrops. Hiking, fly fishing, river rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking, and horseback riding are among Cody's popular outdoor activities.
Cody boasts five world-class museums at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, each depicting unique aspects of America's frontier history.
The "Rodeo Capital of the World," Cody hosts the longest running and only nightly rodeo in the world, the Cody Nite Rodeo. Cody also hosts the Cody Stampede each year from July 1 through July 4 that draws cowboys from across the country to compete in a series of Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) events. The annual Cody Stampede and Independence Day celebrations are culminated each year by several downtown parades and spectacular fireworks shows.
