Living in Cheyenne
Cheyenne is a city of rugged determination and proud independence; a city where the frontier still inhabits the spirit of its people. People came west to find opportunities. Today, Cheyenne still advances opportunity to today’s pioneer.
Cheyenne presents many favorable attributes. Particularly noted for its spirit of volunteerism, the community supports a myriad of activities. One annual event typifies this spirit. Each year, as Cheyenne swells to accommodate three times its population, more than 2,000 residents volunteer their time and talent to produce the world’s largest outdoor rodeo—Cheyenne Frontier Days—an extravaganza lasting 10 exciting days and nights.
