Cheyenne, Wyoming is located approximately 45 miles east of Laramie on I-80.

Cheyenne…the name itself speaks of colorful legends and abundant history. Today, legends from the Magic City of the Plains come alive with assistance from the Cheyenne Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (CACVB). Dedicated to preserving the legacy of this historical, yet modern, Wyoming city, the CACVB can make any Cheyenne visit a once in a lifetime experience!

Located near the geographical and time center of North America, Cheyenne is a commerce center situated at the intersection of Interstates 25 and 80 and two major railroads. Only 90 minutes north of Denver, Colorado, Cheyenne has become the northern anchor city for the Rocky Mountains’ Front Range.

In addition to its business appeal and convenient location, Cheyenne provides an authentic, friendly Western visitor experience that is more than just a visitor stopover. Cheyenne is its own destination boasting unique attributes and annual events.

Serving as Wyoming’s capital and the Laramie County seat, Cheyenne’s streets are lined with visitor attractions. Relive the West’s glory days on a historic downtown walking tour or museum visit. Explore Wyoming’s wild and wooly history at the Wyoming State Museum, discover the history behind the world’s largest outdoor rodeo at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum and Store, or step back into Wyoming’s earliest statehood days at the Governor’s Mansion. Other museums include the Cowgirls of the West Museum & Gift Store and the Nelson Museum of the West.

The State Capitol Building and Grounds are also open for exploration. Visitors won’t want to miss one of the top ten most extravagant Capitols in the US. Another must-see is the F.E. Warren Air Force Base, home to Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. An on-site museum relates the base’s history and the mechanics of the nation’s largest missiles.

And of course, no Cheyenne visit would be complete without a bit of rodeo and western action. If you’re lucky enough to arrive during summer and have tickets, Cheyenne Frontier Days truly is the “Daddy of ‘Em All.” Of course, local rodeo action takes place at the Friday Night Rodeos, the Shawn Dubie Memorial Rodeo arrives for three days each fall, and the Cheyenne Gunslingers bring wild desperados to town. Other western action occurs at the Terry Bison Ranch, at old fashioned melodramas, on a trolley tour or horse drawn coach ride, at a variety of horse shows, and with a visit to Cheyenne Frontier Days Western Art Show and Sale.

Cheyenne is more than just a western town, though. Visitors will find plenty of opportunities for shopping and culture. Favorites include the Cheyenne Civic Center, Little Theater, Symphony Orchestra, Wyoming State Museum Arts and Crafts Festival, Wyoming Arts Council Gallery, Cheyenne Christmas Parade and Concert, Botanical Gardens, and the Frontier Mall.

With so much to offer, Cheyenne has established itself not only as a historical Western town and business center, but as a year round destination. On your next vacation, contact the Cheyenne Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and live the legend of Cheyenne!
