Christmas Lights

Trolley Light Tours

Have you ever wanted to get in the car and tour the town, looking at all the best Christmas light displays? The problem is you don't know where the best ones are and you realy don't want to drive because then you can't see anything!! Well, we've solved that problem for you ... Visit Cheyenne's Street Railway takes to the streets in December giving tours of all the best light displays in Cheyenne. The tours leave at 6 and 8 p.m. every night from December 13-24 at the west end of Frontier Mall, 1400 Dell Range Boulevard.

The light tours are different each year because we scout the town, looking for the best displays. Get your tickets early. They are on sale for $10 for adults and $5 for children 2-12 years old. Call 307-778-3133 to pay with a credit/debit card or pay in person at the Depot, West 15th Street and Lincolnway. (Please note, the tours do not leave from the Depot, so you will NOT be able to get your tickets on the nights of the tours at the Depot, they must be purchased in advance.)
