Stuck at home? Yeah, me too. Luckily we aren’t VIRTUALLY stuck at home! Plan your outings for this summer with these virtual tours...
Over the last year, Visit Cheyenne worked with a company called Truly 360 to update much of our city’s Google Street View – including interior 360* tours of some of our favorite spots around town, so you can now explore Cheyenne attractions from the quarantined safety of your home!
To view these, click through the links, or type in “Google Street View (desired location)” and look on the left side for the “360*” tab. Click and drag to look around in each panel to explore.
Step back in time in the old governors’ residence. Occupied by the First Families between 1905 and 1976, the home-turned-museum now is overseen by the state’s cultural experts from the Wyoming State Parks Department. With a little bit of creative navigating though the 360 tour, you could couple this with the audio tour of the site by calling into (307) 316-0075.
With several areas both inside and outdoors to explore, the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens will bring some smiles to your face as you tour from your couch and plan your next trip to the crowned jewel of Cheyenne!
For the rodeo, history, and old wagon fans in the crowd, the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum is a must-see. This air-conditioned haven during the summer may become your house-bound refuge for the next month.
Unsurprisingly, there are several 360* tours of this one. A frequent stop on the tourist track, the Cheyenne Depot Museum highlights the importance trains have played in Cheyenne (the reason we are here!). The second floor has an intricate model train that will keep you looking for hidden dinosaurs – let us know if you can find them in the 360* tour!
Definitely a must-add to your post-quarantine adventure, Quebec One Missile Alert Facility is one of the newest attractions to the Cheyenne area. Get a sneak peek and head 60 feet below ground to see where our strongest military defense would have been launched from before the site was decommissioned.
Newly renovated and opened last summer, the Capitol Building is a sight to behold. There are several versions of the 360 tours, allowing you to see the before and after images of the renovations as well.
The State Museum gives a great glimpse of our state’s past and present with a wide range of exhibits. Plot your must-stop displays with the family while you wait to go in person!
While we may be getting fidgety at home, these mini-escapes with your kids might just inspire some plans for this summer and really dig into what we have in our own backyard!
