Crime & Safety
Casper is located in central Wyoming. The town is at the base of a mountain -- and outdoor activities such as hunting, hiking, fishing, and boating are plenty. Casper is far enough from the big city to enjoy rural living, but close enough to travel to the big city (Denver, Salt Lake City, etc...) when you want!
Casper is in Wyoming. This means it is windy, cold, and lonely. With suicide rates higher than any other state excluding Alaska, the minimal crime-rates pale in comparison and seem to be non-existent. For those interested in the outdoors, fly fishing, and hiking this community is wonderful. For those looking for diversity, opportunity, or a stable economy, it is time to look away. Cost of living is slowly rising but the commute is always 'short' considering the size of the town.
The only good thing about this town, our scenery. But it's sooo windy. Which has been causing health problems for us. The people are extremely rude. There is NOTHING to do here. We can't wait to leave!
