Spring road trip to Yellowstone and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Another possibility: how about a long weekend trip to see Yellowstone and the Bill Cody Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming. Cody sits on the East Entrance to Yellowstone, which makes it a pretty cool weekend road trip. Its 490 miles from Denver (7.5 hours drive). A fun possibility along the way is Thermopolis, WY, which has famous hot springs (hence the town's name). So, its a 6 hour drive to Thermopolis... Anyway, we could leave late afternoon on Thursday, spend the morning and early afternoon Friday in Cody, maybe stay the night at the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone, Saturday in Yellowstone, and Saturday night/Sunday morning in Thermolopolis, getting back late Sunday Afternoon. If we wait till Jun 1st, we can catch the first Night Rodeo in Cody...

    We could car pool, split rooms, get group rates to save costs. What do you think? The web site for the Buffalo Bill Center is:

    I'm thinking about doing this one this year. Not sure whether I would do it in the Spring or Fall, though. It would be a great trip....I'll let you know!

    I have been wanting to go to Yellowstone for a long time and would be up for this, with enough notice. I love driving too, and can fit 2-3 others in my car :)

    The Buffalo Bill Historical Center is a world-class musem that is always well worth a visit. And hot springs sound good anytime, too

    Hi! I guess I am a bit of a closet museum junkie. Sounds like fun!
