13 minutes | Saturday, June 18th, 2022

On Travel Talk today we are chatting to Lori Yunker, marketing director from RMI representing the Great American West.  Nestled in the northern part of the USA lies a region that’s truly magical, packed with epic vistas and stunning natural beauty. Awe-inspiring outdoor adventure awaits visitors here coupled with an abundance of cultural activities. In The Great American West, you’re bound to experience the unforgettable. 

Hike legendary trails in the footsteps of world-famous explorers. Encounter a wide variety of majestic wildlife like North American bison, wild mustangs and moose. And experience the authentic and breathtaking beauty of 15 national parks, monuments and memorials including Yellowstone, Glacier and Theodore Roosevelt National Parks and Craters of the Moon and Mount Rushmore National Monuments.

Here, there’s an idyllic blend of friendly, small-town charm and big city amenities. Vibrant downtown areas welcome you with eclectic restaurants, entertainment and shopping. This is a food lover’s paradise, where you can enjoy fine dining on a downtown rooftop or a rustic meal on an expansive prairie. Pull up a chair for a tasting at a small batch winery or distillery, or toast to your adventures at a beer garden or local craft brewery.

The pioneer spirit is alive in these wide open spaces. Visit museums and interpretive centers to take a hands-on journey into Old West history and Native American cultures. See monuments from battles gone by and come face-to-face with U.S. presidents and colorful characters as you step back in time.

This is The Great American West – adventurous, genuine, welcoming and full of spectacular natural wonders waiting to be explored.
