Cheyenne Tourism Master Plan Cover

Why tourism? 

  • In 2020, Cheyenne and Laramie County welcome an estimated 1.97 million overnight visitors.
  • Visitors spent $284.6 million in the Cheyenne area (Laramie County) in 2020, providing 2800 local jobs.
  • Visitors paid $16.8 million in state and local taxes in 2020.
  • Laramie County has the 3rd highest level of traveler spending among Wyoming counties, behind Teton & Park Counties.
  • If the travel industry were a single business, it would rank as the county's third largest employer behind F.E. Warren Air Force Base and the State of Wyoming.
  • Without the tax contribution of tourists, each Laramie County household would pay an additional $678 in taxes to maintain existing government services.
