Wyoming — Home to the world's first national park (Yellowstone) and the US's first national monument (Devil's Tower), Wyoming is teeming with activity, despite being the nation's least populous state (it has a population of only 520,000, compared to the 36.6 million of California, the most inhabited state). Backcountry skiing, hiking, mountain climbing, and white river rafting, against a backdrop of stunning natural vistas, draw adventure seekers of all ages. Historic trails, military outposts, and dude ranches give a glimpse into Wyoming's Western frontier roots, while open-to-the-public summer powwows – complete with ceremonial dances and colorful tribal garb – celebrate its Native American heritage. City slickers (and celebs) looking to unwind flock to the luxury wilderness getaways of Jackson Hole.

Why Go

For the beautiful outdoors, the fauna and flora, the rustic but sophisticated serenity, and wild-game gourmet cuisine.
