As we drive east, a favorite stopping point for tourists from Yellowstone is the town of Cody. The main themes of the town are surrounding pioneers, cowboys and western history are common in the cultural events and activities in the area.

Our stop included the well know "Buffalo Bill Historical Center" which is a large and modern facility. It contains five museums in one, and maintains large collections of many historical items. This includes during the summer a Birds of Prey show. 

Each day a re-enactment of a wild-west shoot-out takes place next to the Irma Hotel. The Irma Hotel is a landmark and was built by William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, the city's co-founder and namesake who named it after his daughter Irma Cody. A focal point is a famous back bar made of cherry that was a gift given by Queen Victoria to Buffalo Bill. The Irma opened with a party on November 18, 1902, to which Cody invited the press and dignitaries from as far away as Boston. The hotel quickly became the social center of Cody.
