Cheyenne Apartments for Rent
Famous for its beautiful landscape, multitude of parks, and extensive hiking trails, Cheyenne features the best of Wyoming. It is the largest city in the state and continues to grow at a rapid pace. It is the county seat of Laramie County and the state capital. It is located in the southeastern section of Wyoming along Crow Creek.
Cheyenne’s beauty as a city is exemplified by its extensive park system with features such as the Lions Park Amphitheater, botanical garden, fitness trail, and mini golf; Holliday Park’s art center, tennis courts, and bike paths; and Absarraca Park’s boating, fishing, and picnic areas. Cheyenne also offers a skate park, activity centers, and the Greenway – a paved, 10-foot-wide, 32-mile bike path.
Several state parks are easily accessible from Cheyenne, including Curt Gowdy State Park, just 24 miles west of the city. Located in the foothills of the Laramie Mountains, the park offers fishing and other water sports, boating, hiking, camping (including a campground next to a free public horse corral), horseback riding, mountain biking, an amphitheater, and historic Hynds Lodge.
Cheyenne’s economy is diverse, ranging from military – through the F.E. Warren US Air Force Base and the Wyoming National Guard – railroads, distribution, and wind turbines. The rugged landscape and nearby attractions means tourism is also a major factor in the economy.
One of the quirkier features of the city is the massive, eight-foot-tall, painted cowboy boots located throughout the city. The boots, painted by local artists, show off the history of Cheyenne and the state of Wyoming. The city features a 19-stop cell phone audio tour of the boots, with artists talking about their contributions.
