Because of its mild, temperate climate, Cheyenne summers are warm but not too hot and its winters do not experience bitter cold. This makes Cheyenne popular among vacationers looking forward to outdoor activities, many of which take place in or around the city’s parks. Lion Park offers a wealth of activities and attractions including the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens and Paul W. Smith Children’s Village that we at previously recommended. Located near Kiwanis Lake and Sloan Lake, the park also provides beach access, picnic areas, paddleboat and canoe rentals, fishing, mini golf, and more. Cheyenne was rated one of Golf Digest’s “Top Ten Golf Towns,” so if you love to golf, tee off at one of the 18-hole courses near the airport or one of the 9-hole courses near the Air Force base.

When you are in Cheyenne, be sure to go to the rodeo. We at guarantee you will have hand-clapping, feet-stomping fun at the rodeo. Cheyenne Frontier Days, held in Frontier Park, has been entertaining rodeo patrons since 1897. This ten-day event during the last week of July is filled with action and entertainment, including evening concerts featuring star musicians. As long as you are out enjoying the rodeo, you should stop by the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum and Store and behold one of the country’s largest collections of western carriages.

The Wyoming State Capitol and State Museum are educational and entertaining destinations to bring one’s family or anyone interested in the state’s history. We at believe the capital building’s architecture will amaze vacationers. The State Capitol, built in 1887, features stained glass, marble floors, and exceptional woodwork, and showcases historic photographs and a wildlife exhibit. The museum next door is a much newer building that features artifacts and other collections.

The museum’s gift shop is one place to start your shopping adventure; it has great souvenirs. Then there is Frontier Mall, where guarantees you will find western paraphernalia from cowboy boots and stirrups to cowboy hats. You can find any western-styled clothing item in Cheyenne. If you are looking for the latest fashions, accessories, or jewelry, visit one of the specialty shops downtown or one of the department stores in Frontier Mall.

Home to the nation’s largest outdoor rodeo, Cheyenne, Wyoming is a city packed with western-themed fun. It offers mild weather, outdoor activities, family-friendly attractions, and more to satisfy any type of vacationer. Book your next vacation to Cheyenne using the above link to
