Take A Trip Back In Time In Buffalo, Wyoming

Visiting Buffalo, Wyoming, is an opportunity to step back in time to the authentic Old West.

Here are some tips to make the best of that experience:

  • Stay in the heart of downtown at the Historic Occidental Hotel & Saloon. It’s no secret, but for good reason. Founded in 1880, the hotel’s rooms are decorated with antiques and feature modern conveniences, including private bathrooms. Arrange a tour of the property for the afternoon. The bullet-riddled saloon comes alive in the evenings with live music, especially for the Thursday Night Bluegrass Jams.
  • Also downtown: The Clear Creek Trail and – for fans of the Longmire Mystery Series – the Busy Bee Cafe and the Bucking Buffalo Supply Co. The award-winning Gatchell Museum tells the story of significant events in the county that shaped the West.
  • In the summer, there’s a good chance you can include a night at the rodeo as part of your stay.
  • The Western steakhouse experience is alive and well at Cattleguard SteakhouseBozeman Trail Steak House and the Cowboy Bar & Grill. Other options like Pie Zanos offer excellent meals as well.
  • Stop by Mountain Meadow Wool to see the mill turn wool into yarn, hats, scarves and more.
