Park to Park
Historic Park to Park Highway to Yellowstone
Where epic is commonplace and adventure welcomes you at every stop.
The Park to Park Region is where history leads to adventure. It’s Thermopolis, where the prehistoric past of the Wyoming Dinosaur Center leads to an alien landscape shaped by mineral water at Hot Springs State Park. It’s Casper, where the Oregon Trail Ruts, Independence Rock and other fragments of the westward expansion lead to world-renowned fly fishing along blue-ribbon waters. It’s Wyoming’s eastern plains, where 19th-century military post Fort Laramie National Historic Site leads to state parks, like Guernsey and Glendo, filled with opportunities for hiking, boating and swimming in sparkling reservoirs. This region is home to Cheyenne, the capital of Wyoming and host of the world’s largest outdoor rodeo and Western celebration: Cheyenne Frontier Days. And it’s home to many small towns with western flair, including eye-catching landscapes, makers of Wyoming spirits and the birthplace of the legendary jackalope. It’s your chance to journey through time and wide-open space on your way to Yellowstone National Park.
