Cheyenne Attractions and Things to See

Cheyenne is the biggest city and capital of Wyoming, and the county seat of Laramie County, that would be platted by General Grenville M. Dodge in 1867, at Cross Creek, a tributary of the South Platte River and named after the famous Cheyenne Indian nation, one of the most famous and prominent Great Plains tribes that had close ties with the Arapaho. It would blossom when the Union Pacific Railroad arrived, and bring miners, opportunists, gamblers, saloon owners, thieves, prostitutes, businessmen, transient railroad gangs, displaced cowboys and soldiers from Camp Cheyenne that would become the F. E. Warren Air Force base, along with troops from Camp Carlin, a supply depot for the fifteen northern army bases on the frontier.

A few of its best landmarks include the Nagle Warren Mansion, the Wyoming State capitol, the F. E. Warren AF base that is one of the country's oldest, continuously active installations and the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens. This fabulous city has more than fifty locations listed on the National Register of Historic Places that include a list way too long to place here, but a few of the most well known include; the Union Pacific Depot, the governor's mansion, the downtown district, Fort David A. Russell, the Union Pacific roundhouse, turntable and machine shop that occupies 113 acres and two historic structures and the Nagle-Warren Mansion.

It is served by numerous interstate and highways, roadways, the Cheyenne Regional Airport and the Union Pacific and BNSF railroads.
