Laramie County Reviews

I like Laramie County very much. It is a great place to raise kids or come to retire. If you are single and looking for a mate, Laramie County isn't great on that. Since I am not into going to bars, the night life for me is lacking. This is the place where I have bought my first home as a single person, which is a great accomplishment for me. Over all I would recommend living here.

Laramie is a great college community, with lots of resources and support. I excelled in Laramie at the university and in the community. Laramie is a lovely Wyoming town with lots to explore.
Not a lot to see and do, but quite a bit of history and museums to look at. Wouldn't mind more variety/ places to eat for food.
