Looking for a summer vacation adventure?

Here's an idea.

Spend the night where Butch Cassidy, Sundance, Calamity, and many other Western Legends spent the night: Wyoming's historic Occidental Hotel. 

Ah yes, ghosts stay in those rooms and wander the hallways.

Stepping through the front door of the Historic Occidental Hotel in Buffalo, Wyoming, you are truly stepping back into the Old West.

Anywhere you walk in this famous Wyoming hotel, you are stepping in the footsteps of famous people of the Old West.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid rode to the Occidental from their hideout at the nearby Hole-in-the-Wall, which is south of Buffalo Wyoming.

The famous cattle detective and killer, Tom Horn, was another frequent visitor.

Legendary frontier sheriffs like Frank Canton and "Red" Angus were regulars at the bar.

Other famous visitors to The Occidental in its early days included Buffalo Bill Cody, Teddy Roosevelt, and General Phil Sheridan. Calamity Jane, who drove freight wagons on the Bozeman Trail, was also connected to The Occidental.

President Theodore Roosevelt and President Herbert Hoover slept there

Ernest Hemingway stayed for a time when he explored and hunted in the Bighorn Mountains. He also wrote a portion of A Farewell To Arms in this room (and probably at the bar).

Owen Wister, author of The Virginian, spent many happy hours in the Occidental lobby and saloon, and based characters in his celebrated novel on cowboys and gunslingers that he observed there. Many historians believe that the shoot-out in his book, the first "walk down" in Western literature, took place in front of the Occidental.

The old hotel is truly a living museum.
