The east is where farming takes place, as here are all fertile fields and flat landscapes. But the wild west can still be experienced here. The best time to visit the state is during spring and summer, as winter can be quite harsh. If you do go around this time, you should take the cold into account and dress warmly.
Theodore Roosevelt used to spend a lot of time in the state and even owned a ranch there. Thanks to him, a number of national parks have also been established that you can now visit. The parks are there to protect nature and keep it intact. The Rocky Mountains are highly recommended during your visit.
