I loved living in Wyoming before people from Michigan, Colorado, and Oklahoma moved here and brought their crime, bad driving skills, and complaints about how awful it is in Wyoming. Wyoming for Wyomingites!

This is an adorable little mountain town with so much to do! Even though Casper is not a big town with a lot of brand name shopping, there are many outdoor activities for you nature lovers. Casper montain is a short fifteen minute drive away. There you can go camping on Bear Trap Meadow, skiing at Hogadon, hiking the Bridal Trail, or four wheeling through the gorgeous aspens.
Casper is a wonderful community that continues to grow. Within the past year alone, Casper has opened new businesses and public areas that provide both children and adults with multiple activities. One of my favorite things about Casper is that there are many things for children to do, many of them being free of charge. For example, the library is open to the public with a library card or student ID. Parents can check out books, movies, and more for them and their families. Additionally, the library hosts several events for young children that provide enjoyable experiences and encouragement to read. Casper is my home town and I love how community centered it has become.
