Sheridan County Reviews

Sheridan County is a place full of do-ers and dreamers. Seated under the vast Bighorn Mountain range, there are a myriad of outdoor adventures that await you. Summer and Fall offer some of the nations best fishing, whether you're floating on a kayak on a mountain lake, or following a wide open stream with your fly rod. New trails unfold for mountain bikers and hikers, offering breathtaking views and heart-healthy family fun. The downtown community of Sheridan reminds you of the old west, with it's rustic décor and timeless charm, yet still finds a way to entice guests seeking a more modern experience. Follow Interstate 90 just 17 miles north, to find the quaint communities of Ranchester and Dayton. Life along the Bighorns happens at a different pace here, where large ranches and rustic landscape lie in plain view. Follow the road on through on Highway 14 to enter the gateway to your mountain top adventure. This wonderful county in Wyoming reminds us that life is worth living!

I enjoy Sheridan as a community. It is a smaller town and people are supportive of one another. Sheridan is next to the BigHorn Mountains and there is nothing more beautiful than our BigHorns. Sheridan has great local activities from Wyo Rodeo to the farmers market. I feel this is one of the safest and best areas to raise a family. The only thing I do not like and would like to see changed the price of housing. Both renting and buying are extremely expensive here, but that is the price we pay to live in the safe, beautiful and friendly city of Sheridan, Wyoming.
I have lived here my whole life. I have seen it change for good and sometimes for worse. Overall Sheridan is my favorite town because you can live in a city or country without having to be far from anywhere. There aren't many things to do during winter months except go to the YMCA or watch a basketball game. There is so much to do during the summer and that's obviously when Sheridan becomes most alive and festive. I love agriculture influence and how the town is supportive of just about everything. It's just a great place to live, until it snows like ten feet in the winter. But who's counting? So that's that.
