Thermopolis is a small town by American standards. But, at roughly 3,000 people, it is a pretty decent size for Wyoming.
There is no Walmart or many of the restaurant chains you’re used to seeing. And, driving through the downtown area is like stepping back in time into a modernized cowboy movie. Even so, there are quite a few things to keep you busy:
- Ranch animals and horseback riding
- Gebo Ghost Town
- Bighorn River Rafting
- Hot Springs
- Annual Parade & Rodeo
I stayed here for an entire month before the travel itch got me moving again.
