Great place to live and visit - 6/18/2021
The center of Cheyenne retains the character of America with traditional western values. Easy and we'll maintained walking to parks and downtown restaurants/bars/shops which offer something different and more than the homaginized chain offerings found throughout so much of slumburbia Read More

A great place if you can stand the winter wind - 2/24/2021
My husband, dogs, and I have lived in Cheyenne for almost two years.

The pros:
Cheyenne is a really nice place, especially if you have kids or dogs. The weather in the summer is amazing! It's warm, but not too hot, with no humidity. There are hail storms in the summer, but they haven't been too bad on the side of town we are in. There are miles of parks and trails to use for walking or biking. Even biking on the main roads isn't too bad! The library is superb, there is a nice botanical garden, and national parks aren't too far away. Crime is low, but I did have a run in with someone trespassing on my property this week. The locals are generally friendly and welcoming. There is lots of shopping in town and whatever you can't find here you will find 45 minutes down the road in Fort Collins. The breweries downtown (Accomplice, Daniel Marks, and Black Eagle) are phenomenal! There are 8 Starbucks throughout town so you're never far from your coffee fix. Read More

Cold place to live. - 12/15/2020
I've lived in Cheyenne for almost 52 years. Most things here are just right. Housing, on the other hand, is ridiculously high. Thereb isn't any decent public housing to be had, as even after paying for the apartment you check doesn't seem to cover food, medical, and transportation cost. Read More

Cheyenne is nice and great if it does not change. - 7/15/2020
I have lived in Cheyenne for a year, and I loved it.

1. Small, not crazy city
2. Plenty of stores and restaurants
3. People are respectful
4. Live next to Warren AF Base, so I see great Air Force air crafts
5. Great dairy and meat

1. Living next to and airport
2. Schools
3. Fruit is not the greatest
4. More people are flocking here, ruining the small city environment
5. WintersRead More

It has been a great place to raise a family. - 4/29/2019
I've lived in Cheyenne for 35+ years. Prior to coming to Cheyenne, I lived in the SE us. I'm now looking to move away. I'd like a more inexpensive place to retire, and I'd like more temperate weather.

I'll start with the good. It is a small safe town and the people are friendly. There is
adequate shopping. There is also some entertainment (plays, concerts, etc...) locally and even more available along the front range. There are numerous parks and a greenway. The Summers are pleasant with warm days and cool nights. There is also a community college in town and it is a short drive (50 miles) to the University of Wyoming. There are also employment opportunities: state government, Air Force base, railroad and some datacenters, etc....

Now the bad: Got to start with the wind. Many very wind days (50+ mph). These happen all year long. The other big weather problem is hail. I think, the size of the hail and the frequency of the storms Read More

Long time resident. - 7/28/2018
Cheyenne overall is a great place to live. As a military brat and serving myself i have lived in dozens of communites nationwide and rank Cheyenne closer to the top. Average cost of living and cheaper than most of the front range. Some of the best summer weather in the entire country but winters are definetly windy and cool. Shopping has most everything you need but if it is not here it is available 45 minutes away. Many food styles are available but if your taste is not found it too will be available 45 miles away. Cheyenne is a conservative community with some of the lowest taxes in the country but is still one of the most progressive cities in Wyoming. Most healthcare options are available in Cheyenne with the hospital and several local clinics being part of much larger healthcare systems from Denver Colorado. Cheyenne has great highway access and commutes a very quick travelling almost anywhere in the community in less than 15 minutes. Cheyenne does not currently have Read More

Great place - 6/17/2018
Low crime, low cost of living, great friendly people that typically give you the greeting of the day and open doors for you, safe to walk downtown and not many homeless people in other words liberals haven't ruined it yet however it is 36% liberal I believe the most in WY for a city but its still a great Read More

A big small town - 5/31/2018
Not too much things to do. Feels like the town's been forgotten by the world. No upper scaled businesses. Locals are very conservative and oppose to accept new things. Old people and losers are stuck in town for low paced life. Anyone who has ambitious, better job, or good financial strength will move to Colorado. Slow drivers everywhere reflect the backward of living attitude. Tons of coffee shops, sandwich, burger, and taco shops. Cost of living is low. 9 months of winter, windy all the time. You won't feel very happy living here. Locals are arrogant with limited vision to the world. Like a frog sitting at the bottom of the well, believing the sky is just as big as the Read More

Depends on the individual - 4/15/2018
Difficult to breathe. Extremely dry and dirt filled air. Has everything necessary. Read More

Two Stars - Wyoming would get more, just not here - 1/22/2018
When I could not find affordable housing in Ft Collins/ Loveland, CO, I went on up to Cheyenne, WY and found some affordable housing.

It was also housing run by a lady who later did some odd (and I do mean, odd) things to me! Scary - really.

There is a lot of good about the city. Its historic, beautiful really - Art is encouraged (and music). That part was really good for me.

But if you study its history, it was also full of scoundrels. Well, it has many good people - but its still full of scoundrels too.

However, if you are there, I don't know if the re-vamping of the Capitol building is complete or not, but it was one of the most beautiful Capitol buildings I ever saw!

Do not trust medical - not unless its greatly improved since I was there in 2015. It got me in trouble, and I was appalled - I also saw horrible treatment of others (but it may have improved. When I lived there in 2015, everybody would not trust Read More
