It’s known as the home of some of the best wonders in the world, its Wild West history and this year sees Wyoming celebrate its 125th Anniversary as a USA State but what else does this incredible destination have to offer?

Watch the video as the person who probably knows his state best - the Governor of Wyoming, Matt Mead, talks to us about the fascinating history of the state going all the way back to Buffalo Bill and the Wild West to America’s first and largest national park, Yellowstone.

A real sight to be seen, the site of a super volcano, 2000 thermal springs, geysers and bubbling mud pots, it is also home to the Grand Prismatic Spring, the largest hot spring in the country.

Wyoming is also famous as The Cowboy State and Tim Kellogg, a real life cowboy with another, perhaps unexpected, profession - shares all that and more as he joins the Governor.

And if you’re still not convinced, Wyoming also boasts the aesthetically stunning mountain resort of Jackson Hole, popular with Hollywood A-listers such as Harrison Ford, Sting and Sandra Bullock to name a few.

For the adrenaline junkies and adventurists there are activities like skiing, horseback riding and white water rafting all at your fingertips. Anna Olson tells us about everything Jackson Hole has to offer and what you can expect as a guest.

For all this and more watch the video and find out why you should pick Wyoming as your next holiday destination.
