Featured Story
Take a trip from Laramie to Cheyenne to see the capital of Wyoming.
Cheyenne Is a Must-See

During your stay in Laramie, you may want to make a day trip over to Cheyenne, the capital city of Wyoming. There’s so much to do here that you’ll want to make sure to start your day pretty early and plan to stay late.

Start your visit at the Cheyenne Depot Museum, which has been named a National Historic Landmark. It was an original stop on the Union Pacific Railroad, and has been restored to showcase its original beauty. Learn about the history of the railroad through interactive exhibits, and then step inside the visitor’s center to plan out the rest of your day.

In the Depot, you can find a map that plots out the locations of the various eight-foot tall cowboy boots that have been painted by local artists. The works are inspired by the history of Cheyenne and Wyoming, and are scattered throughout the city.

If a guided tour is more your speed, catch a Cheyenne Street Railway Trolley for a fully-narrated tour through the city. You’ll visit places such as the Depot Museum, the Capitol Building, Botanic Gardens, and the Frontier Days Old West Museum. There are specialty ghost tours around Halloween and Christmas light tours during the holiday season.

If you’re lucky enough to be there around the end of July, you’ll get the opportunity to see their annual Frontier Days. Experience a real western Rodeo, visit an authentic Indian village, ride carnival rides, enjoy street concerts, and watch the parade go through downtown. There are carriage rides, gunfight shows, shopping, plays…you name it!

History buffs will enjoy the Wyoming State Museum, where relics from the earliest days of the territory are housed. Admission to the museum is always free.

This is just a taste of all the exciting things there are to see and do in Cheyenne. You might need an extra day to explore the state’s capital city!
