Cheyenne offers the charm and slower pace of the real west while providing an exciting array of activities and amenities of modern entertainment and education. It is the home of America’s largest rodeo: “the Daddy of them All” — Cheyenne Frontier Days. Cheyenne boasts one of the best community colleges in the west, Laramie Community College. There are numerous museums, art galleries, theaters, and parks. Some of the best recreation and scenery in the country are within a few hours’ drive of the city. Cheyenne is located near the geographical and time center of North America. Strategically situated at a major transportation hub (the intersection of Interstates 25 and 80 and two major railroads), it is a developing center of commerce. Only 90 minutes north of Denver, Colorado, Cheyenne sits as the northern anchor city of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Cheyenne is the state capital of Wyoming, the seat of Laramie County, and the site of F.E. Warren Air Force Base.
If you like year around outdoor variety, Wyoming has it – from the Red Desert to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, Wind River Canyon, the nearby Snow Range Mountains to the Black Hills and Devil’s Tower National Monument. There is something here for everyone. The western two thirds of the state consist of mountain ranges and rangelands in the foothills of the Eastern Rocky Mountains while the eastern third of the state is high elevation prairie known as the High Plains. Combine that environment with no state income tax, a low cost of living and good schools; topped off by a great relationship with the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) and you have a great place to live and work.
