Cradled by the iconic Bighorn Mountains, Sheridan is Wyoming’s emerald city. The place where cowboys convene over craft beer and coffee, where antelope spring over canvasses colored with Indian paintbrush, and the majestic peaks of northern Wyoming stand proudly. Home to a thriving arts community, endless outdoor activities, and action-packed events, such as the WYO Rodeo and 3rd Thursday Street Festivals, Sheridan is bursting with excitement and adventure as big as the Bighorns!

Experience Sheridan, from authentic history in the Main Street district, with 30 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, to the Landmark Historic Sheridan Inn, where Buffalo Bill once auditioned acts, to the magnificent backdrop of the Big Horn Mountains.

Historic Main Street offers unique specialty shops, a historic trolley, walking tours, dining, and much more. In Kendrick Park, you can tour a mansion, visit a Western museum, or just relax where the buffalo and elk roam.

Enjoy live performances at the WYO Theater or stop at the legendary Mint Bar. Lodging and dining options attract individuals and groups of any size. Visit the T-Rex Natural History Museum, as well as dinosaur sites and digs in the Big Horn Basin.

You’ll find nearly limitless recreational opportunities in the pristine Big Horn Mountains. Hike, bike, camp, boat, rock climb or photograph the wildlife and scenery in these golden hills. Encounter tranquil, secluded streams and some of the finest fishing around in the Bighorn National Forest’s 180,000 acres of wilderness. Come winter, snowmobile on more than 200 miles of top-rated trails.

Sheridan is also Wyoming’s golf capital. You can play four courses—three of which are within a few miles of the city center. Sheridan serves as a cultural center for the region—home and inspiration to hundreds of local artists.

Enjoy weekly rodeos and polo with events all summer, featuring the Sheridan WYO PRCA Rodeo, Don King Days Old West Rodeo and many others. Polo matches are held at two venues: Flying H Polo Club and Big Horn Events Center.
