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!

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 is a very family friendly city, and the perfect place to raise a family. It has most things within reach, while still showing the beauty of Wyoming. Other cities are very close if you are in search of more, such as Denver. Cheyenne is also located 45 minutes from our local University, and is home of LCCC. Cheyenne Frontier Days brings alot of people to our city, and provides entertainment for all! Cheyenne is very historic, and modern all wrapped into one.
