Wyoming is the tenth-largest US state by area, but there are only some 585,000 people living here, resulting in a density of a mere 2,08 per square kilometer and thus, by population Wyoming is the smallest, number 50 out of 50 US states. Consequently, what visitors find here is lots of open space - and that is the most convincing of Wyoming’s argumentation points.
The Cowboy State has a lot of space for amazing sceneries. In Wyoming, the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains and by that, a unique landscape has developed, including the areas of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
Those in turn make tourism one of the most important income sources of Wyoming, which is carefully maintaining its reputation as the Cowboy State. There are a large number of dude ranches here, where tourists get a glimpse of the cowboy lifestyle, there are vast meadows and endless fences and enormous herds of cattle, being driven from one meadow to the next one.
But even if you only visit Wyoming’s cities, you won’t leave the Wild West. In the streets of Casper, Jackson, Sheridan or Laramie, one may still easily find the spirit of Buffallo Bill and his time. Furthermore, Wyoming is home to large communities of Native Americans, some of whim are living in vast reservations, for example in Wyoming’s west.
