Winchester rifles, Charles Russell paintings, Wild West show memorabilia, American Indian headdresses, and a skeletal saber–toothed cat leaping near a stuffed grizzly—the Buffalo Bill Historical Center’s five museums (307-587-4771) connect the myths and reality of the Old West. For a dose of the New West, stop at Cody’s North Fork Anglers for fly–fishing tips and guided trips (307-527-7274). Or arrange a family–friendly raft trip down the fast Shoshone River with Wyoming River Trips (307-587-6661).
