One of the last places to be settled in the continental US, Cody, Wyoming still carries hints of the wild and outdoorsy old west. With a population of just under 10,000, it has a decidedly small-town feel among the scenic northwest corner of the state. It's a relatively popular tourist area, especially for those passing through to Yellowstone National Park 50 miles away. As far as the residents go, this is the home of ranchers and cowboys. Everything offered by the outdoors, from wildlife to recreation, is top notch here.
