Summer fun like Frontier Days and Hell of Wheels Rodeo might be done and over with, but the fun isn't even close to done! 

One of the best ways to enjoy Cheyenne is the live music, and, as the weekend approaches, many wonder about the best places to go. They might think “Summer is coming to an end, the weather is getting cooler, and the business of the summer nightlife is slowing down. Welp, guess it’s time to pack up and go home. See you at Thanksgiving!”

Really? Come on, you know us better than that – summer might be ending but the fun in Cheyenne isn’t even close to a conclusion. Fall does mean cooler weather, it means seeing the fall colors at Curt Gowdy, Pole Mountain and the Snowy Range. It means trout fishing is going to be picking up, and hunting season is here. 

But wait, we have fun in town too. Sure, everything pumpkin spice is going to be so in your face you won’t be able to smell cinnamon quite right until February – but I’m talking the nightlife, live music sort of fun!
