In a land of rolling hills and sagebrush-covered plains stands Wright, Wyoming, a driving force of the Powder River Basin. This small-town packs big character with charming local eateries, stock dog and rodeo events throughout the year, and special activities during the summer. Take a few swings at the local golf club or toss a line into Panther Pond, which is stocked with a variety of fish including Channel Catfish, Green Sunfish, Largemouth Bass, and Rainbow Trout. You can even get a taste of the past at the Wright Centennial Museum as you step into the life of an oldtown cowboy.
Just a short drive away from Wright stands Devils Tower, the country's first national monument, Thunder Basin National Grassland, and Durham Ranch, one of the largest privately-owned bison ranches in the country. Gillette, Wyoming is also just a stone's throw away. There, you can soak in the sights of the top-rated Rockpile Museum and Frontier Auto Museum and afterward enjoy homemade mead and craft beer at locally operated breweries.
