Fort Cody Trading Post

Fun stop right out of the '50s -- a tourist trap, but plenty to see. They had old school stuff like bubblegum cigarettes and handshake buzzers, along with a lot of western-themed trinkets for sale.

Fort Cody Trading Post: Muffler Man

Wonderful classic example of a Tourist Trap that my parents would never stop at. The Muffler Man Native American style was fantastic. Keep this place alive!

The miniature Wild West Show runs every 15 minutes. It doesn't do too much, so don't worry if you miss the action. You can see the show without motion any time.
