Gather Wild West experiences for your book of memories when you visit Laramie, an outdoor town with an outlaw past.  Thanks in part to movies, TV, and books, the name “Laramie, Wyoming” conjures up visions of the Old West like few other towns do, and that reality still exists.  Today, the community’s historic downtown, rodeos, and guest ranches capture the Western hospitality, entertainment, and excitement associated with the Old West lifestyle, and visitors from all corners of the globe are enthusiastically welcomed.

But this town nestled between prairies, rock formations, and the majestic Snowy Mountains offers more than a Wild West experience.  Laramie prides itself on offering a little something for everyone.  Outdoor recreation opportunities abound in the Medicine Bow Routt National Forest, including fishing, hiking, rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, cross country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, and horseback riding. Nearby, outstanding rock climbing opportunities await on the weathered rock formations comprising Vedauwoo Recreation Area.

Laramie residents and visitors also appreciate the wealth of cultural opportunities found within the county.  Twelve museums provide insight into topics ranging from Western justice and Laramie history to paleontology and modern art, and the University of Wyoming draws year-round theater, dance, music performances, and nationally recognized speakers.  Downtown, visitors will find novelty stores, unique boutiques, art galleries, bookstores, cozy restaurants, and watering holes made famous during Laramie’s outlaw past.  To top it all off, Laramie is home to a variety of annual community events, including summer Farmer’s Markets and concerts in the park, Jubilee Days, Fire in the Sky, Beer Fest, and pow wows. For a taste of small town life, visit the neighboring communities of Centennial, Albany, and Woods Landing, each of which offer their own unique charm and a glimpse of the Wild West. 

The history of the Old West mixes with culture and recreation in this unique corner of Wyoming for an experience not easily forgotten. No matter what type of adventure you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it in the hometown communities of Wyoming’s colorful Albany County.
