Shuffling Off To Buffalo

Kickin’ back and relaxing in a town that once ran wild! Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane were just a few that passed through to spend a night just like us….once upon a time. The quaint little town of Buffalo Wyoming is steeped in history. Stroll the historic streets and you can see bits and pieces of it every where you look.

Head down the main street of town and you will find murals painted on the walls of buildings depicting the by gone era of cowboys.

As you meander further through town you’ll cross over Clear Creek  bridge and see the rushing river under foot. It’s tree lined banks and crystal clear water a peaceful escape from the hectic pace of contemporary life. Linger and bit and relax to the sound of the creek.

Directly across the street is the Historic Occidental Hotel. When you step through the front door, you will be walking where many famous people of the Old West walked – Butch Cassidy and the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, Calamity Jane, Buffalo Bill, Tom Horn, the young Teddy Roosevelt… and many more.

A little hotel humor to go with all the gun slinging characters who livened up the sleepy little town.

The Occidental Hotel has quite the pedigree! It was named The Best Hotel In The West by True West Magazine! Whether you are in the mood for afternoon tea or want to wet your whistle over at the saloon, the Occidental Hotel will serve up a heaping plate of hospitality for sure!

Over in the saloon you can belly up to the original back bar that was brought in by wagon a hundred years ago. Even the bullet holes you see in the saloon are originals.
