I love the friendliness of Cheyenne. I feel safe when I am there and it is a great place to live. I would like there to be more things to do around town though. There are not many things for kids and young people to do, other than go to Colorado. Overall, Cheyenne is a wonderful place and they are the hosts of Cheyenne Frontier days which is always a blast!

Living here for about 4yrs.I am from the east coast.May not be a fair comparison;but Cheyenne provides culture shock-years behind in many things.Lovely old buildings downtown going to waist-empty and not cared for.For Capital city,appears poor and uninspiring .No friendlier them any other place.Place to eat out , real challenge.Not best place to live.Eather make it a cool place,keeping but improving or turn Cheyenne into an advance metropolitan.Cheyenne good place to visit museum ,relax with little traffic,quiet-but keep going after a days.All in all,be great to see Cheyenne grow .Experienced more rude drives and folks hear then Denver,and that is saying a lot.Yes ,they are prejudice.Be great if Cheyenne could keep the legion but with class ,many improvements the Cheyenne way-dont need to copy other states-keep Cheyenne real-take much work and dedication.
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!
