The 10 Best Things to do Good for Couples in Wyoming, United States

October 21, 2021 Janette Largent

Wyoming boasts a positively selfish hoard of natural outdoor beauty! From the soaring peaks of the Grand Tetons to Jackson Hole valley and Yellowstone National Park, the mountain landscape and natural wonders of Wyoming are breathtaking. All-season outdoor activities prove a natural draw for families, couples and group getaways. Sports lovers golf through spring and summer at attractive rates or tackle river and lake fishing, hunting and hiking. Families take to Alpine skiing and snowmobiling in Jackson Hole, Snow King, Grand Targhee and Pine Creek. Every visitor is awed by the deep canyons and steaming geysers of The Yellowstone National Park. Each magnificent sight rivals the next. The Grand Tetons rise over a mile above Jackson Hole valley, where a ride on the Aerial Tram from Teton Village offers unforgettable views. Across the entire state, wildlife stakes its rightful claim, from bison and bighorn sheep herds to black bear and mountain elk. For a step back in frontier history, take the family to Go Native America to experience Native American culture, history and arts of the Plains Tribes. Enjoy tours with indigenous guides, horseback riding and roping lessons. With every experience, your family will gain a sense of the pioneer spirit that pushed America westward.

Medicine Bow National Forest

Range of mountains close to Laramie which offer a wide variety of outdoor sports.

Reviewed By DillonM1905 - Eldersburg, United States

Less than an hour from Laramie, the national forest is a must see for hikers and other outdoors lovers. We took the loop trail to Medicine Bow Peak (clockwise) and it was fantastic; the views were amazing and the hike was a challenge. We were happy we brought our poles for crossing a large snowfield and coming down the steep trail near the peak. Get early for parking in summer as the lot filled up quick, as did parts of the trail.

A spectacular waterfall located in Canyon Country.

We crossed Chittenden bridge across the Yellowstone river; stopping first at Uncle Toms to view the smaller upper Falls, then on to Artist Point to view the MAGNIFICENT lower falls and the unbelievable colors of the canyon. It is IMPOSSIBLE to describe the majesty of this waterfall and canyon colors, so we will not even try,

Grand Teton

Tallest mountain in the Grand Teton Range.

Reviewed By Vagabonds5358

This is the ninth trip to the Grand Teton National Park I my lifetime. In remains my favorite of all the national parks I have visited. It’s beauty never seems to get old. There are a few roads that gives you access to the east side of the mountains, the the real beauty is hiking the many miles of trails away from the roadside overlooks. This trip we saw elk in rut, a herd of about 200 bison, a number of herds of pronghorn antelope, bald eagles and numerous waterfowl and birds. The fall color with the turning aspen was spectacular. I highly recommend this park to anyone, whether you enjoy the drive, day hiking or backpacking.

Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

Reviewed By USN_Seabee_Wife - Chehalis, United States

#1 Rule: Don't forget your camera, make sure your batteries are charged and that you have plenty of SD cards for your digital camera. What is here: The dramatic, 1,000-foot-deep Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone rewards visitors with dazzling views of multi-hued rock walls and majestic waterfalls. With walking and hiking trails for all abilities, and learning opportunities for the whole family, it’s easy to spend an entire day in this unique area of the park. The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is roughly 20 miles long and varies from 1,500 to 4,000 feet wide. Geologists believe it was formed as the Yellowstone River eroded softer, less resistant rock that had been weakened by hydrothermal gases and hot water. The colorful canyon is a natural work of art: streaks of red, orange, gold, black, and even green decorate the canyon walls. Several miles of trails connect 10 primary overlooks that afford dramatic views from both sides of the canyon. When we went there had been snowfall and it made the most beautiful pictures since it was combined with all of the colors of the canyon. Whether it’s your first visit to Yellowstone, or you visit regularly, everyone loves a summer day in the park. Here’s how to get the most out of yours. The best way to experience all the different facets of the canyon’s charm is to pick a trail and go for a hike. There are many trails along both canyon rims, from short jaunts to all-day treks. Here are a few of our favorites: Brink of the Lower Falls Trail (moderate): Descend 600 feet on a steep trail to get an up-close and personal view of the Lower Falls in all its thundering power. 0.7 miles, round-trip Seven Mile Hole Trail (strenuous): You’ll want to commit a whole day to this trail – the only one that leads to the canyon bottom.10.2 miles, round-trip Point Sublime Trail (easy): After visiting the Artist Point overlook, follow the South Rim Trail beyond Artist Point to this less-traveled path, which meanders along the canyon rim to the aptly named Point Sublime. 1.3 miles from Artist Point to Point Sublime View the Canyon and Falls While some views of the canyon and falls are only accessible by trail, you can still get to the following overlooks by car and a short walk from the parking lots on paved, accessible walkways. From North Rim Drive: View the Lower Falls from Lookout Point, Red Rock Point, Grand View, and Inspiration Point. Both waterfalls are visible from Brink of the Lower Falls. From South Rim Drive: See the Upper Falls from two viewpoints at Uncle Tom’s Point. View the Lower Falls at Artist Point. Several of the canyon overlooks and trails, which were originally built in the 1930s, are being rehabilitated with support from Yellowstone Forever. Over the years, they have been hammered by unforgiving weather, compromised by soil erosion, and damaged by increased visitation. In recent years, these conditions have prompted some temporary or long-term closures.

Lamar Valley

Reviewed By FancyFree55 - Florida, United States

This route is an amazing drive into the park, with large herds of buffalo grazing in vast fields on both sides of the northeast entrance road. It seemed that our visit coincided with birthing season, when lots of calves were just joining families. They're an unusual orange-brown color, compared with the very dark fur of their parents.' Tourists parked all over the sides of the highway to stop for close-up photos these incredible animals. When I say close-up, I mean with a good zoom. Park signage warns you not to get nearer than 75 yards because the animals are very fast and, if they feel like their babies are threatened, they will charge. We were very fortunate to also spot a small herd of pronghorn elk grazing not far from the road and got some great pix. The drive itself is beautiful, with mountains off in the distance, and a river winding through vast green along and around the roadway.
