Wyoming is best known for being home to most of Yellowstone National Park, which features the iconic Old Faithful geyser and the largest hot spring in the U.S.
The name Wyoming was derived from a Native American word, mecheweamiing, meaning “at the big plains.” Wyoming is nicknamed “The Equality State”. It was the first state in the United States to give women the right to vote in 1869.
Wyoming attracts millions of tourists each year to its national parks, forests, and monuments, including Yellowstone and Devils Tower – a rock formation sacred to the Plains Tribes. It was declared as the first national monument by Theodore Roosevelt in 1906.
