I arrived in Cody on Wednesday, May 14th. My vacation is over, its back to work for a few months. During the first few days I walked around town and stopped in some of the local coffee shops and diners. I usually don't eat out, but I wanted a few days of rest after more than a week on the road, so I treated myself to some meals out, people watching and just sitting in a coffee shop reading brochures about the town.

Everything is Cody is very accessible without a car. I can walk to the grocery store, health food store, Kmart, Walgreen's, the post office and library. I have already signed up for a library card.

There are perks with a seasonal job. I have been on a free trolley ride ($25 value) and was able to visit the Buffalo Bill Center of the West Museum ($18 value). I have also been given free admission tickets and some discount coupons for other attractions and will probably be able to do a free rafting trip.
The entire town smells of lilacs as I walk around town. There are purple and white lilac trees and bushes everywhere. All of the houses around town are very cute and well taken care of. I take a walk once or twice everyday. There is a bike store in town and I need to have a tune-up done on my bike so I can ride around, then I may ride to some of the attractions that are a little bit further down the road.
