1. Reconnect While Fly Fishing
We think that A River Runs Through It got one thing right – there truly is no better activity than spending some quality time together fly fishing! It’s amazing what kind of conversations spontaneously happen when you are standing next to someone in the peaceful quiet, lightly flicking your line over the tranquil waters. And no child ever forgets their first big catch! Fly fishing is a family activity that will inspire years of reminiscing!
2. Find the Thrill of the Hunt
If you have older kids, a fantastic family activity is bird hunting. Out here in the gorgeous state of Wyoming, you can enjoy the thrill of the hunt and the incredible beauty of the countryside surrounding you at the same time. We guarantee that this will be a birding excursion that you won’t soon forget!

If the “Cowboy Out on the Range” experience is the one you’re hoping for when planning your family vacation, Wyoming is the absolute best place for you! The country is just waiting to be explored by your family atop a few good horses. Feel the wind in your hair, breathe in the fresh air and be amazed at the vast, craggy scenery around you.
