- Town in Wyoming
Rating 3.8 out of 5 170 reviews
I have lived here my whole life, and I love it here! While the weather can be drastic, it refines those who reside out on the plains. The community is very tight knit, with some incredible historical sites and landmarks.
I raised my kids Casper wyoming. Casper is a Great place to live, work and raise your children. there were plenty of things to do In Casper. Indoor football team, minor league baseball team. School sports, recreation sports, camping, fishing, shooting range, 4 movie theaters and a medium sized mall. Casper College men & women's basketball, high school sports, and concerts at the event center. Plenty of restaurants, Recection center.
Very outdoor friendly which is great. It is still very energy dependent which I would like to see change.
Beautiful environment with the mountain only 10 minutes away from anywhere in town and Alcova Reservoir is a quick 40 minutes away. A great school system that cares about its students. There are many restaurant options and great local and franchise businesses around town. Not too big or too small with about 60,000 people. Slightly close-minded when it comes to the people as they are used to being only about themselves living in a less populated environment.
Casper is a very homey town. Despite its size it has a small-town attitude. Everyone knows everyone and most people are generally friendly. There is always something to do in Casper, whether it is concerts at the college or events in the event center. There are always things to do.
I enjoy all of the outdoor opportunities Casper has to offer! Hiking, skiing, fishing, you name it. We have enjoyed our time thus far.
Casper used to be a quiet city. Growing up I was able to ride my bike to the store without worry that I would get hurt or kidnapped. There was a dark underbelly of drugs but it was not out in the open like it is now. The city is expanding in many ways. There were small town around Casper that have now basically become suburbs of the city of Casper.
Perfect place to raise a family. It has a ski resort within a 20 minute drive for downhill skiing, cross country skiing trails are groomed, great hiking trails, and mountain biking trails. It is affordable and has a lot to offer for out door enthusiast.
City streets are horrible. Home owners have no pride in ownership. Residential sidewalks are poor. Casper Mt is mostly private property. There is a series of mountain bike trails that is nice. Bike path is good in some areas and poor in others. Casper does very little to promote activities. And the city does little to improve roads and parks. For outdoor enthusiasts, it is a terrible place to live. And if your used to living in a nice and pretty city, Casper is not the place to live.
Casper is a great place to lay down roots and call home. Especially if you are an outdoor enthusiast! There's a mountain with miles upon miles of single track for all kinds of user groups in all seasons. Development and expansion of these trails is also in the works for years to come. Alcova, and pathfinder reservoirs are a mere 30 minutes from town offering countless opportunities for sport or pleasure. The platte river which flows through town is a blue ribbon fishery. Fremont canyon on Alcova offers world class rock climbing. The opportunities are near limitless. Couple our big open spaces with safe, and friendly neighborhoods with a good public school system and you have the makings of your forever home.
Bring your ideas and pioneering spirit and settle into a bustling community full of life, adventure and opportunity. A fantastic place to raise a family, start a business or enjoy the great outdoors. Get involved or go solo, Casper has something for everyone!
Casper is a great place to call home. As someone who values affordability, safety, community, the ability to build and grow a business, and proximity to go really anywhere I'd want to go, Casper is a hidden gem. Its got access to the wild, and enough urban and shopping opportunity to satisfy. The diversity is definitely starting to become more apparent, and the ability to meet real change-makers in a short time, make Casper really a wonderful place. The college offers top-notch education, for students and lifetime learners, and the active pivot into the diversification of industry is happening in Casper, in real-time. Casper is a sleeper town, for the time being, it's like being on the ground floor of a company that's about to take off.
Has a great small-town feeling to it, while still being the second-largest city in Wyoming. Sometimes it can be hard to find places to shop or find entertainment, but it's nice to have a lower crime rate.
Casper is an average small city in the heart of Wyoming. There's a lot of beautiful scenery here, and the North Platte runs right through the center. Quite a few people end up coming back here to retire because it's a cozy place to live. The winters and summers are pretty brutal, though.
I do not mind living in Casper for the most part I mostly believe it has the same issues that you'd find in any other city with such a low population. A large amount of my age group is struggling with addiction and i mainly attribute this to the lack of community led projects for the youth or for lack of better word anything to do. I live in an oil field state and that is where most of our funding and attention goes to but I'd love to see my city put effort forth to build a community.
A very cold town, not a lot of opportunities for growth, close minded people who do not accept other peoples opinions. The whole area is very anti-science, anti-medicine.
A beautiful place full of wild life. Companies are expanding and reach clear out to Casper giving people a wonderful array of shopping centers. The town is not to big, but have plenty of wonderful opportunities.
