“Was there two hours...could have spent two days”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

We took a quick drive to Cheyenne from Denver to see the Wyoming capitol building, and for the kids to add another state to the list of places they'd visited. We were in town about two hours but could have looked around for two days!

Our trip occurred on a Saturday in August. Arriving in the quaint downtown area we were struck by how clean and attractive it was. A lot of folks were streaming to the farmer's market. We joined them and had a blast sampling and buying wares at the many tents.

Later we stopped briefly by the capitol building for a few photos, then took the long way back to the highway to get a view of some of the heritage neighborhoods.

Folks were very hospitable and prices at the market were reasonable. The weather in mid-August was mild and pleasant...my guess is August is one of the best times of year to go.

Don't make the same mistake we made..allow some time to visit this jewel of a community. Next time we travel to the area, Cheyenne will get more attention. Until then, we'll fondly remember our two hours in this town on the high plains..

“cheyenne great place to visit”
Reviewed June 30, 2010

my wife and i stopped in cheyenne on our way to las vegas and had a great time. though only there for a day cheyenne is small enough to see most sights. we took a great trolley tour and had lunch at a restaurant housed in the old train stattion which i might add is a treat in itself. they have a nice museum and gift shop.
anyone who likes western movies and has seen cheyenne featured in some of them will be surprised to find the area is very flat and no mountains.
people are very friendly and both my wife and i thought it would be an interesting place to live.
