YES! Wyoming will win you a mystery adventure

BRAND USA IS GIVING AGENTS THE CHANCE TO WIN A MYSTERY ADVENTURE – THAT’S RIGHT, MYSTERY – JUST BY KEEPING UP TO SPEED WITH THEIR USA DISCOVERY PROGRAM ONLINE TRAINING.

The training site covers a whole bunch of American regions and experiences, so agents are completely immersed in the destination and know just how to sell it to clients.

The online training comes with 37 badges in total, but what’s most important now is the 5 new ones, and that’s also where the mystery adventure comes in.

Agents can snag themselves a two-night mystery getaway for two people, complete with flights, accommodation, transfers and destination info, just by completing the 5 new badges, which include:

  1. Alamo – which we covered recently and you can catch up on here.
  2. Wyoming (today’s gem!)
  3. Chicago
  4. Illinois
  5. Discover the Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel

But agents are darn busy working bees, so we’ve broken down each of the newbies into bite-sized chunks so you can learn all you need to know and breeze through the training.

Today we’re giving you the lowdown on Wyoming. The incentive is open now, with winners announced on October 6.

Click HERE to get cracking, and in the meantime, let’s get to know Wyoming, USA.

WYOMING

Yellowstone 0005 (61)-001

The Real America doesn’t get any more real than Wyoming, where the classic cowboy culture of the American West is still alive and well.

Seeking an authentic Western holiday? You’ve come to the right place.

Wyoming has trail rides, cattle drives, supper under the stars, and an authentic heritage and history of the Old West, which you can discover on numerous tours and attractions.

When it comes to rodeos, Cheyenne Frontier Days can’t be beat. Held each summer in Wyoming’s state capital, the world’s largest outdoor rodeo boasts 10 days of roping and riding competitions, carnival rides and Western exhibits, including a Native American Village.

For more Western heritage, visit frontier towns like Cody – home to the Cody Nite Rodeo, the Cody Wild West Show Concerts and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West – or Buffalo, home to the historic Occidental Hotel and the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum.

If it’s outdoor adventure you crave, Wyoming isn’t a place to scoff at – in fact it has two of America’s most spectacular national parks.

Yellowstone National Park offers 9,065 square kilometres of unspoiled natural splendour and countless opportunities for camping, hiking, fishing, boating and more.

Camp by a crystal-clear lake as a bald eagle soars overhead, observe free-roaming elk and bison in their native habitat, or gaze in wonder as one of Yellowstone’s famous geysers thunders skyward.

Yellowstone’s two million acres of grandeur are only the beginning. Hike the mighty mountains in Grand Teton National Park, just south of Yellowstone. There you can cruise across scenic Jenny Lake or take a float trip down the epic Snake River.

Visiting during winter? Enjoy world-class skiing in the premier ski resort destination of Jackson Hole, where you’ll have access to over 1200 vertical metres of terrain.

Corbets Couloir

And if you’re a big lover of the prehistoric tourist attractions, then the Fossil Butte National Monument, where you’ll have the opportunity to view some of the Earth’s most ancient fossils, has got you covered.

Some of the most charming small towns that should definitely be on your must-see list include:

  • Jackson: With so many mountain ranges within a stone’s throw, Jackson Hole is a hub of outdoor recreation.
  • Sheridan: Welcome to the thrill-seeker’s wonderland.
  • Pinedale: Nestled against the western slope of the Wind River Mountain Range.
  • Gillette: Between Mount Rushmore to the east and Yellowstone National Park to the west.
  • Cheyenne: For the world’s largest rodeo.
  • Devils Tower Country: Trails for mountain bikers, hikers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, snowmobilers and more.
  • Wind River Country: Enjoy Native American powwows and culture.
  • Saratoga: Breathtaking views attract artists, photographers and nature lovers alike.
