During the summer, the Cheyenne Gunslingers perform free western skits and gunfights. Cheyenne’s Holliday Park is home to one of the few surviving “Big Boys,” the largest steam locomotive ever made.
Cheyenne also has a Museum Loop Tour that includes the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum and the Wyoming State Museum.
Nearby, the Vedauwoo Recreation Area is ideal for hiking, climbing, and biking.
