Hub of Wyoming - 8/23/2009
Casper is a nice town. The people are friendly for the most part and are very accepting of outsiders. They do not care where you are from as long as you work hard and don't have a bad attitude. The cost of living is reasonable and there are decent jobs to be had, although the majority of them are mining-related. The town has lots of big box stores and a very nice mall (one of only three in the state). Casper is the "big city" of Wyoming and so many events happen there. There are lots of outdoor activities as well. There is small ski resort on Casper Mountain, camping is available there, fishing on the Platte River, and there are some reservoirs nearby where you can have motorboats. Hunting is also readily available, especially for antelope and deer. The only negatives:
* Long, cold winters
* Very windy (not uncommon to have 60mph+ for days at a time)
* Not a good singles scene, particularly for men (many more men than women, this is all over Wyoming)
* Isolated Read More

Our educaton and Health should be looked at. - 10/21/2008
We need more money in out housing, education for the children and adults and our most importatn to our health. We need some kind of program to always get taken care of. We have to grow with our children so we should have medical. What do you all thik about that? Education is important, and try to get more security for cutting school. Kids don't need to be drinking, doing drugs, they need to thisnk about their future, cause you know we won't be there that long so we need to teach the kids to take care of their selves. Housing we have so much homeless people in California I am from california and now I am here in casper, Wyoming, so Just think who would be the best President and Vote Vote for the schools while your at it. Well have a great week and God Bless each one of us. I hope everything is Read More

Living in Casper - 10/17/2008
I have been here for over 8 years. I have a good job and have been with it long enough that I am locked in financially and cannot move now. I will be the ONLY person here who will give you the straight facts. Casper is a rude city to live in. The cowboy mentality pretty much means mannerless, ignorant,and self-centered and you will find it without looking, anywhere you go here. The nicest most intelligent people you will meet here were born and raised elsewhere. The meth problem is big and hits the papers weekly. The clean air and open spaces are deceptive since the breast cancer rate per capita here is high. Must be something in all the chemicals and minerals here in the ground. If you move here you would do well to love extremely windy days (40+) because it blows like that 3 to 5 days out of the week. Doesn't matter if it's winter, or summer, it BLOWS..We are constantly chastised for telling people that but why lie to someone about a real issue?? Property sales and rentals are Read More

Big, Wonderful Wyoming! - 8/14/2008
Casper is a very nice town to live in. It is big enough to have most of what you need and be self-sustaining yet it has a small town feel. The people there are some of the nicest, most genuine people you will ever meet. It is a very working class town and people don't care if you come from out of state, as long as you are a hard worker. I have found this town to be very accepting, contrary to the popular stereotype of Wyoming. The school system here is wonderful as well. Even though there are over 50,000 people, you can still see antelope and deer in the parks and golf courses. Wonderful place to live, I only left due to a job opportunity I couldn't refuse.

*If you are planning a move to Casper (and most of Wyoming) be sure to look for housing as soon as possible. It is tough to find! Also remember that the wind blows nearly non-stop in the winter and highways and interstates close at the drop of a Read More

Great Place - 10/12/2007
Casper is an underrated place to live. People seem to scoff at the idea of living here because it is Wyoming and because it is not pretty, there are no huge mountains nearby. For those of you who like a little more than scenary in life, Casper is for you. This is not to say that the scenary here is not pretty, there are some smaller mountains within minutes of town, but it is no Jackson. People move here because they are looking for gainful employment, not because it has pretty mountains or a big beautiful lake nearby to look at. There are a couple of reservoirs nearby though. This is not a town full of LA transplants who leave their hometown just to change a new town into a mini-LA. Casper has any store that you need with the exception of any major bookstore. If you do not need to have every store under the sun, Casper is for you. Casper is in a high desert so that means that both extremes of temperatures are reached, including some of the worst blizzards that can be seen. If you can Read More

casper winters & misc. - 4/12/2007
Casper winter starts in early Nov. although it is common to have snow as early as mid-late Sept. The biggest thing to get use to is the wind. The temp may be in the 40's in Jan but the wind can be 30-40 mph for a week straight. The city is about 50k people and is growing fast. House rentals are hard to find but there are still homes from 150k. Most of the new construction is 200k to 300k and up. Positives are good fishing nearby. Platte river has good trout fishing. Lakes within 30 min. Pretty good medical facilities. Denver, Co. is only 4 hrs away. Hope that Read More
