Dubois, Wyoming, is a remote destination just east of Yellowstone National Park. Because of its secluded location, the town and its surrounding area is known for spectacular views and varied wildlife. Though the town itself is home to less than 1,000 residents, there is never a shortage of things to do, especially where the outdoors is concerned.
- Welty’s General Store: Frequented by Butch Cassidy, the store is still in operation today. The store’s current location opened in 1903 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
- Dubois Museum: The museum houses artifacts beginning with the Precambrian Era through the end of the timber industry in the 1980s. It offers a walking tour of the area, a children’s exploration series, and discovery speakers.
- Shoshone National Forest: Set aside in 1891 as part of the Yellowstone Timberland Reserve, the Shoshone National Forest offers endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
- Yellowstone and Grand Tetons: Just over an hour away from Dubois, you can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities in these two parks. From rafting to hiking to wildlife watching, just driving on the scenic road there is worth the trip.
