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 2,500 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.
Hundreds of restaurants to please any palate – from Asian cuisine to buffalo burgers.
