Experience Wyoming in One of Our Rental Cars
Start roaming through the Cowboy State and you won't run out of things to do. Whether you're interested in exploring national parks like Yellowstone or Grand Teton, seeing a real Western rodeo, or relaxing at some of the spas and hotels in the state, Wyoming will be your playground. Take your Wyoming rental car to camp out near Old Faithful or drive to lodging close to Devil's Tower or Mount Rushmore. Whatever you decide to do, you won't want to leave this great state.
Yellowstone National Park
A beautiful and historic landmark, Yellowstone National Park, should be your first stop in Wyoming. The National Park has plenty of interactive things to do that the whole family will love. Plan a day trip complete with a picnic, or sign up to take a llama ride throughout the park. If the kids are old enough, take them on a Geyser Kayak Tour to explore the natural elements. Those with children ages 5-12 can become Junior Rangers by filling out an activity guide on their journey through the park. They'll earn a badge at the end of the adventure! While traveling, in your Wyoming rental car, you'll realize that this state capital is reminiscent of the Wild West. If your're visiting over the summer months, check out the Cheyenne Frontier Days festival in July, which features an Old West Museum and offers visitors a look at the American West and the history of the rodeo. You can also check out Wild Horse Gulch, a Western village filled with artisans, merchants and period characters. The kids will also love the Cheyenne Gunslingers, who have year-round shows with western skits and family-friendly Wild West gun fights.
Last Stop: Devil's Tower
Don't be scared of the name of this national monument when you bring the family here. There is an abundance of ways to explore, including biking, hiking and climbing! Take a ranger-led tour of the monument. The easy 1.5-hour walk features topics that include:
- The area's indigenous people
While the kids are in bed, and if you're up for it, take a Full Moon Walk that begins as dusk for hikers with flashlights. This event occurs on select evenings in the summer.
