One Tiny House + Four Epic Wyoming Destinations
May 15, 2017—Cheyenne, Wyoming—As part of the “Call of the WY” promotion this summer, the Wyoming Office of Tourism (WOT) has partnered with four Wyoming destinations—Buffalo Bill’s Cody/Yellowstone Country, Wind River Country, Visit Pinedale and Sweetwater County Travel & Tourism—to be the home base for the tiny house and selected adventurer this summer.
“While Wyoming has so much to offer across our nearly 98,000 square miles, we’re thrilled to be working with these four in-state partners,” said Kristin Phipps, brand integration senior manager at Wyoming Office of Tourism. “As we continue to reinforce Wyoming’s brand to a national audience, we wanted to be sure that the destinations we worked with on this promotion are close to iconic and nationally recognized landscapes and we’re pleased to be collaborating with such great partners.”
The tiny house and its selected adventurer will spend time in each of the four destinations, where he or she will be able to explore the area and experience its offerings and activities. The six-week promotion will kick off in Buffalo Bill’s Cody/Yellowstone Country on July 2 and conclude in Sweetwater County on August 13.
