Sheridan is a very welcoming community with a lot to offer! From amazing historical sights to hikes through the mountains. It is a very quiet town, with little to no crime. Everyone knows everyone and we're all friends. I would love to see some bigger businesses coming into town, and they are! We just got Famous Footwear, and I believe we are in great need of a Target. Or a mall!

Sheridan is a wonderful place to raise a family. It offers the best of small, western town life. The mountains are located nearby. The schools are the ranked #1 in the state of WY. The restaurants are very good and there are even a couple of local brew pubs. There are plenty of activities for children all throughout the year. This area of WY is considered "God's Country" and it truly is a wonderful and beautiful place to live. There are plenty of outdoor activities available for the whole family which is really great: camping, hiking, boating, skiing, skating, music festivals, rodeos, art festivals, food festivals, family community gatherings, church gatherings, and many more fun-filled activities for the whole family. I have lived many places around the US but this is my home. The people of Sheridan are very welcoming and kind. You can always find a helping hand if needed.
I currently live in Sheridan. My family has been here for 15 years. It's a small town that has tons to offer. Outdoor activities year round include rodeo, polo, mountain biking, hiking and running in the summer, skijoring (horse pulling a skier along a snow course), Christmas Stroll in the winter. These are just a few of the family friendly activities that draw the crowds to Sheridan. Housing is expensive and limited but can usually be worth the investment. Education is second to none.
