My wife and I made our first trip to Cheyenne in July to see the "Daddy of Em All" and it was fantastic. We live in Kentucky which is a beautiful state, but a very different type of beauty from Wyoming. Although we got a lot of questions about our accents we certainly enjoyed talking to the folks that we met in Cheyenne. I was surprised at how many tourists from other countries were there too. We sat next a couple from Italy and at least rodeo has a universal language because we sure had a few problems answering their questions. Fantastic time and we will come back again to watch our daughter barrel race. She swears she will be running in the NFR some day (she is 16) and if we get to go to places like Cheyenne to watch her on her journey to the NFR I couldnt think of a better way to spend a summer day. P.S. We really enjoyed the cooler weather too with no humidity!!!
My last visit to Cheyenne was July 22 - 27, 2009 during Frontier days. Not only did we do the Frontier days activities (3 concerts, 2 rodeos etc)but we explored the city. We went on the Big Boot tour which was an adventure in itself. I absolutely adore your city.
Hi, This year I only took in KENNY CHESNEYs night show, but I loved at the end of it while his band played on he signed autograghs on hats, shirts, and what ever else he was handed. Thats a first and hope will be done by more to come. Usually though I see the Thunderbirds, 2 or 3 night shows, take in the Pancake Breakfast. At least one parade, and one or two walk arounds the Fair Grounds(shopping). The rodeos are also on my list of must dos, with the behide the shuts tour, and a walk through the Indian Village and watching their shows and crafts making with kids. The Mellow Drama is another must do with walking (shopping) around downtown. Thanks to CFDs Committees for their hard work that they do. If there was anything I would/could change it would be getting artist sooner so balancing a budget would be easier for those of us from out of state.
We were in Cheyenne for Frontier Days this year. We had a great time. We did the Frontier Park from end to end...went to a couple Rodeos,PBR, and George Strait. We did a lot of shopping in town. There is so much to choose from. We also went to one parade and pancake breakfast. Also we went to the Outlaw Saloon a few times for the great music and a little dancing. Cheyenne is a wonderful town. All the locals we talked to were so nice and helpful, too. They all took time to talk to us and be friendly. We have been there for Frontier Days several times and plan on coming many more times. Thanks Cheyenne for the good time and the memories. Everything is so well run and organized. Our hats off to all of you. Bill and Lila Feather LeRoy, MN
