Get your photo taken with a famous outlaw, the “Sundance Kid”
Sundance, Wyoming is the community where Harry Longbaugh earned his moniker “The Sundance Kid” after being jailed here forstealing a horse from a local rancher. “Sundance” evokes images of a rowdy Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid leading the Wild Bunch on the longest stretch of train and bank robberies in Old West history.
Imagine serene Native American villages camped at the base of the majestic Sundance Mountain where they performed their sacred Sun Dances. Immerse yourself in Sundance’s true west story where outlaws weren’t actors and North American cultures were on a collision course.
This historic gateway Wyoming town is only 28 miles from America’s First National Monument, Devils Tower. Sundance offers uncrowded, four season outdoor activities amidst over 125,000 acres of National Forest surrounding the community where fine restaurants and relaxing bars, motels & resorts and quaint retail shops await you at the end of the day.
Be sure to visit the Crook County Museum and have your picture taken with the Sundance Kid, in the town Where the Kid got his Name!
