Cheyenne Reviews

Cheyenne has a lot of good qualities. It is a sleepy small city. The crime is low. Very quiet. Great people. Cheyenne has a lot of work needed on things to keep people living there. Don't recommend using the local hospital due to its poor performance. Most residence go to Ft. Collins/Loveland for medical care. The city government has done nothing with our downtown. It is apparent that the city doesn't really have a plan for its subdivisions. It's a patchwork of different zoning that doesn't blend together. The waste of money by the city is out of control. The police are complacent. Broken windshields, missing bumpers, no tail lights, and no license plates are just a few laws never enforced. Insurance is higher due to the numerous hail storms. WINDY!
Review Cheyenne
I love living in Cheyenne. The town hosts a wide variety of activities throughout the year for families. This includes Cheyenne Frontier Days, Laramie County Fair, Farmer's Market, Goblin Walk, and much more! There is also a wide variety of museums, parks, and shopping for all ages. Educational opportunities abound from the progressive early childhood facilities, private schools, and local community college, LCCC. It is a pleasure to be part of the community.
Cheyenne has a great and interesting western history. The annual Frontier Days is a great event! There are many other activities to enjoy throughout the year as well such as farmers market, Western spirit art show, Cheyenne comic con, Depot days, Celtic festival, and other activities that are too numerous to list. There are nice places to visit too! Botanical gardens with a children's village, Governor's mansion and many museums and parks.
