Wyoming continues to be an underrated state. Sure, it doesn’t have the bright lights of New York or the pristine water that Florida boasts, but Wyoming has more than its fair share of natural beauty, good eats, and historic places. Tried-and-true travelers love Wyoming for its no-frills approach to fun and adventure. There’s no over-abundance of casinos or comedy shows or giant flashing billboards – and the locals like it that way! If you’re in the market for a serene, calming, wistful experience away from all the hustle and bustle, then you’re in the market for a Wyoming vacation. And when you’re there, hitting the State Parks is the thing to do. Don’t miss these Fabulous State Parks on your visit!
The Top Parks
Yellowstone National Park
This one is obvious, but has to be listed. Yellowstone is no doubt a bucket list item for any serious traveler. When you’re there, check out Old Faithful, an on-the-clock geyser that explodes in a unique way over and over. After that, check out the Grand Prismatic Spring, which is the largest hot spring in all of the United States. Yellowstone never disappoints – and don’t forget to bring the camper!
Grand Teton National Park
While it may nott get as much attention as the above mentioned Yellowstone Park, Grand Teton certainly holds its own weight. It’s actually linked to Yellowstone through Rockefeller Highway, and it’s the place to go (in my humble opinion) for both and biking in the Wyoming area. Yellowstone gets the press, Grand Tenton gets the better rating with its calmness and serenity compared to the iconic Yellowstone.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
Past sounding kind of funny, Jackson Hole is a one-stop ski resort just South of Teton National Park. Yes, a lot of things in Wyoming seem to be rather interconnected — but that’s good for you, huh? Less moving, more doing! Enjoy breathtaking snowy hills, a historic lodge, and just remember: pizza, french fry. Pizza, french fry. Or if you’re like me, just stay in the lodge and drink.
So there you have it! Wyoming may not have the glitz and glamour that the coasts offer, but for down-home, true-blue adventuring, it’s hard to beat Wyoming. And, of course, it’s a lot cheaper. So nowadays, you may want to hit Wyoming just for that reason.
