The Great American West
Nestled in the northern part of the USA, the diverse and epic Great American West states of Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming are packed with stunning natural beauty and an abundance of wildlife. With plenty of wide open space to explore, if you’re looking for adventure the Great American West has it all!
The region oozes awe-inspiring scenery with sweeping prairies, majestic mountain ranges, thundering waterfalls, deep canyons and is blessed with the breathtaking beauty of 15 national parks, monuments and memorials including Yellowstone, Theodore Roosevelt and Glacier National Parks, and Mount Rushmore and Craters of the Moon National Monuments. The stunning scenery of the Great American West has beckoned Hollywood film directors to film in the region including Stephen Spielberg who shot sci-fi epic Close Encounters of the Third Kind at Devils Tower Monument in Wyoming and the Oscar award-winning film Dancing with Wolves featuring Kevin Costner was shot in the wilds of South Dakota.
The regions’ interesting towns are the perfect base when visiting the must-see attractions, some of which have vibrant downtowns with unique restaurants and popular microbreweries to real-life cowboy towns complete with saloons with horses tied up outside where you can experience live fun re-enactments with legendary characters.
