Soda fountain in Shoshoni,A&W near Thermopolis still exit?

I've read about a soda fountain in Shoshoni - does it still exit? I also saw something about a cute, old style A&W restaurant in / near Thermopolis - does this still exist?

Any other recommendations as we travel between Casper & Cody?

You're probably thinking of the Yellowstone Drug Store in Shoshoni. It's been there about 100 years and I suppose it's still standing.

A&W Root Beer is on the main street through Thermopolis.

btw, get gas before you leave Casper because there's basically nothing between Casper and Shoshoni.

If it helps at this point, the Soda Fountain in Shoshoni was OPEN when we drove through on December 26th so that bodes well for it being open when it's actually high season. We did not go in and check it out though. The A&W in Thermop has some pretty tasty sundaes.

Visit and stay in Thermop! Fun place to soak in hot springs. Stay at the Best Western Plaza Inn. They even have a hot springs hot tub!
