Retire in Cheyenne Wyoming

Beautiful countryside, low crime, and affordability all help to make Cheyenne Wyoming one of the best retirement towns in the United States.

Cheyenne is the capital of Wyoming and is located in the extreme southeastern part of the state.

The prairies of Southeast Wyoming support farming and ranching. As you travel west, these plains give way to mountain ranges.

With a population of 9,000, it is very surprising to find a town of this size with such top notch healthcare, art galleries, museums, a community college, and a Civic Center that hosts theater and the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra.

Other highlights include:

  • Located along the Sloan Lake in Cheyenne are the "Beaches of Cheyenne". Residents and visitors can canoe, swim, fish, and bike here.
  • Warren Air Force Base is one of the largest employers in the town, and many military retirees call Cheyenne home.

  • Held during the last full week of July, the Cheyenne Frontier Days is the largest event held in the city. Put together mainly by volunteers, the event includes parades, western art shows, Native American art and culture, concerts and of course, the rodeo. This is the largest outdoor rodeo in the nation.
  • Cheyenne Regional Airport has regularly scheduled flights with American Eagle and Great Lakes Airlines.

While the winters are long, many people feel that the beauty and other amenities of the area more than compensate.

So, if you enjoy the outdoors and don't mind the cold, this may be the location for you.
