Driving west through Cody, Wyo., en route to Yellowstone, you'll find the area spectacularly scenic.
“People are so surprised when they get here and they say, ‘We could’ve spent a couple more days here,’” says Betsy Christiansen whose Shoshone Lodge and Guest Ranch was built in the 1920s and has been run by four generations of her husband’s family. "It offers an uncrowded experience."
Plus, the area offers tons of activities from horseback riding and fishing to ziplining. It's also a great place to spot wildlife.
