Cheyenne is a fairly safe and comfortable place to live. Cost of living is slightly higher than expected due to the oil fields and Union Pacific being so close, especially if renting. The school system is decent, but there is a current fight going on to have climate change taught in public schools. School districts and colleges are experiencing reduced funding due to the state budget crisis. There's not much to do with regards to nightlife if you aren't interested in the bar scene. There are some really great mom and pop restaurants though. Diversity is almost nonexistent. Most of the diversity here comes from the Air Force base.
