A visit to Yellowstone National Park and surrounding communities like Cody, Wyoming is quite a haul from the Motor City but is well worth the drive. While it is often more convenient to make a road trip during the Summer, especially if you have children who are off from school, if you can make the time for a fall visit it is well worth the trek. Here are six reasons why you should make the effort to go on a Fall visit to the Cody Yellowstone area:

Fewer Visitors 

Traffic drops off when the kids go back to school. As long as most school districts follow the traditional calendar and have long summer breaks, most families will be back to their routines by September. Enjoy the scenic views without having the jostle with crowds!

Great Weather 

Warm – but not too hot – daytime temperatures followed by cooler evenings are typical in Cody Yellowstone. Low humidity and few rainy days help to temper the extremes as well. 

Bears are Hungry 

 The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is known for its grizzly and black bear populations, and as winter approaches these species kick their caloric intake into high gear as they prepare for hibernation. That means opportunities to spot them as they fatten up for the season.

Elk have Other Things on their Minds 

Male elk court prospective mates by shrilly bugling and challenging other males to battle. Fortunate visitors can receive quite the show – from a safe distance, of course – as the bulls look to expand their harems.

Fish are Biting 

Cody Yellowstone is renowned for its fishing. While seasoned anglers will tackle trout action in the streams in and around Cody on their own, novices might want to hire a fishing guide for their first foray. Fly fishing shops also offer maps and advice. 

Style and Art 

The most prestigious event of the year, Cody’s Rendezvous Royale is staged the third week of September. The event includes the nationally known Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale with Western-themed art, a quick-draw event, auction, Western fashion show, seminars, studio tours and a ball.

Home of the Great American Adventure, Cody Yellowstone is comprised of the northwestern Wyoming towns of Cody, Powell and Meeteetse as well as areas inside of Yellowstone National Park and the valley east of the entrance. The region is known for rodeos, authentic guest and dude ranches, world-class museums and recreational adventures that reflect the adventurous spirit of the visionaries and explorers who brought the remote region to the world’s attention.
