Drive the Sweet 16 to Yellowstone.

On your way to Yellowstone, stop in the small towns of Worland, Wyo., and Ten Sleep, Wyo., on U.S. Hwy. 16, known as the Sweet 16. In the summer, the towns come alive with festivals like Nowoodstock in Ten Sleep that celebrates its 18th year of bluegrass, folk and jazz bands in 2018. In August, Worland hosts the annual Pepsi State BBQ Championships and Bluegrass Fest.

For area history, head to the Washakie Museum and Cultural Center, which features exhibits on ancient mammoth hunters all the way to Wyoming’s early settlers. Beyond, check out the limestone walls of Ten Sleep Canyon, which attract rock climbers from across the nation. Attend the Ten Sleep Climbing Festival the last weekend of June or 4th of July Ten Sleep Rodeo to experience the eclectic mix of locals.
