Frequently asked questions about moving to Cheyenne

What’s the town’s history?

The city was founded in 1867 when the Union Pacific Railroad was being built out west. General Grenville Dodge and his crew chose the area because it’s where the Union Pacific crossed Crow Creek. The city was named for the American Indian Cheyenne nation and became the capital of the territory of Wyoming in 1869.

Where’s it located?

The city is situated on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in the lower eastern corner of the state. It’s surrounded by rolling prairie, and is just 106 miles north of Denver, CO.

How’s the weather?

In Cheyenne, you’ll experience cold, long, and dry Winters, and warm summers. Winter temps average in the 30s, while summer temps average in the 70s-90s. You’ll get about 60 inches of snow per year, typically during February through April, so be sure to bring or purchase a snow blower. Spring and Autumn will be quick, so be sure to enjoy it when it happens. As for rain, the city gets about 15 inches per year.

How are the schools?

The Laramie County School District 1 provides the area with 27 elementary schools, three junior highs, and four high schools. For those seeking higher education, Cheyenne offers Laramie County Community College, a brank of the Institute of Business and Medical Careers, and a branch of the University of Phoenix.

Is the economy strong?

Because Cheyenne is the state capital, the government is the largest provider of jobs in the area. Also, many people in Cheyenne are employed by the U.S. Air Force’s F.E. Warren Air Force Base. Other job industries in the area include cattle and sheep raising, manufacturing, distribution (Wal-Mart and Lowes both have centers in the area), electricity, and energy. In fact, due to the city’s high elevation, it’s one of the windiest cities in America (move over, Chicago!). Taco John’s, Great Lakes Airlines, and Green House Data are all headquartered in Cheyenne.

What’s there to do in Cheyenne?

Maybe the better question is what isn’t there to do in Cheyenne. The city has a lot going for it, including a few different annual events. The city hosts the world’s largest outdoor rodeo and western celebration, Frontier Days. More than 200,000 people flock to the event every year for nine days of rodeo, concerts, carnivals, art shows, and the Old West Museum. During the holidays, the city hosts the Cheyenne Christmas Parade, which includes a two-day craft show.

If you’re looking for shopping, Cheyenne has you covered. Just make your way to the Frontier Mall where you can browse several name brand stores and grab a bite to eat. To bring out your inner cowboy or cowgirl, make your way to one of the city’s many Western wear stores including The Wrangler and Just Dandy!

For fun outside, look no further than the Cheyenne Parks and Recreation Department. The department operates an Ice and Events center, a spray park, skateboard park, swimming pool, two golf courses, and Cheyenne Botanic Gardens. There is also a 37 mile greenway system that connects parks and neighborhoods to Greater Cheyenne. You should also check out Curt Gowdy State Park and scenic Happy Jack Road.

Other fun things to do and see in Cheyenne include the Wyoming State Museum, Cheyenne Depot Plaza, Historic Governor’s Mansion, Lincoln Theater, Terry Bison Ranch, Big boy Steam Engine, Bit-O-Wyo Ranch, and the Wyoming State Capitol and Museum.

For food and nightlife, check out the Capitol Grille for their award-winning culinary creations or Poor Richard’s Restaurant, where you can get thick and juicy steak. There are also plenty of pubs and bars with country dancing for a true Cheyenne good time.
