Apartments for Rent in Casper, WY(show city information)
Sprawled along the base of Casper Mountain and divided by the North Platte River, Casper is a ruggedly beautiful city with an equally rugged history. It began as an oil boomtown when the Salt Creek Oil Field was discovered in the late 1800s. Once a true Wild West town, the streets of Casper still echo with the hooves of long-ago horses ridden by rough-and-tumble cowboys.
The modern-day city of Casper is as beautiful as it is economically strong. Those renting Casper apartments will enjoy an outdoor lifestyle that includes downhill skiing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, whitewater rafting, hiking, mountain climbing, biking, swimming, and rock climbing. For the less adventurous, the city contains several golf courses, a recreation center, an ice arena, and more than 40 parks. The 11-mile Platte River Parkway is ideal for strolls along the river, fishing, and picnicking.
