Home to cowboys, rodeos and all things Western, Cheyenne is a must-see on your next stop in Wyoming. Settled by pioneers traveling along the transcontinental railroad, Cheyenne embodies the wild, wild west with a modern edge. As the capital of Wyoming, this big city offers plenty of history, recreation and activities for travelers of all walks.
When you fly into a jet charter airport in Cheyenne, be sure to pack your cowboy boots and favorite Stetson hat. If you time your visit just right, you’ll arrive in time to enjoy the Cheyenne Frontier Days, the world’s largest Western celebration and outdoor rodeo. You’ll love exploring exhibits, challenging yourself to games, tapping your toe along to some of the best country and folk music in the country, and watching prized bulls buck their riders.
For those arriving at other times during the year, there’s still lots to see and do in Cheyenne. Sports and outdoor enthusiasts can try their aim at The Archery Range at Curt Gowdy State park, one of Wyoming’s largest outdoor ranges. For those looking for something a little more relaxing, three reservoirs in the area offer water sports of all kinds.
Cheyenne is also home to numerous hiking and nature trails, trails more suited to horseback riding, prime geocaching locations, picnic areas, rock climbing hillsides and mountain faces, and so much more.
