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.
Review Cheyenne
Cheyenne, Wyoming is the capital of a sparsely populated state. There are few job opportunities, little diversity, and not much to do in the local area beyond leaving it to visit other regions. The best thing about the town is a lack of traffic and an easy egress path to other locations. There are a few positive camping experiences, outdoors locations, and other such within the local area. There are two major colleges within an hour of the city in Laramie, WY and Fort Collins, Colorado.

Fort Collins nearby is great for a night on the town and the college nightlife.

Laramie has a small college.

Once a year the town explodes with people from all over coming to Cheyenne Frontier Days.
Cheyenne is a very quiet and friendly town that has a lot to offer every person. The people here are always nice and the surrounding area provides many sightseeing excursions that make Cheyenne a great place to live if you're into outdoor activities. The population is small which creates easy commutes throughout town. During the summertime Cheyenne comes to life, embracing its past and heritage through rodeos and festivals which attracts many tourists year after year. If you're looking for a quiet and safe place to live Cheyenne is a wonderful option.
