What Bert Has To Say About Cheyenne Metro Area

Cheyenne is the capital city and commercial center for the state of Wyoming. As the gateway from the Great Plains from the advent of the transcontinental railroad, it still serves as a major ground transportation and agricultural center. The functional and attractive downtown core has a well preserved historic Western feel. There are a few museums, but many of the typical cultural amenities of a capital city are absent.
