Why Fly to Cheyenne?
Cheyenne is both Wyoming’s capital and its largest city, but the compact metropolis is surrounded by gorgeous wheat-filled plains, looming mountains and wild, untouched deserts. The juxtaposition of these urban and remote environments makes a Cheyenne vacation feel almost like two trips in one; day trips from the city afford visitors unbelievable views and nature experiences, while a retreat to Cheyenne each night ensures the cuisine, nightlife and comfortable accommodations of a modern city.

Cheyenne Flight Tips
Because there are so few flights into Cheyenne, many visitors to the area opt to fly in and out of Denver International Airport, located about 100 miles to the south. Denver is the main hub for Frontier Airlines, the secondary hub for United and a focus city for Southwest, helping to make it one of the world’s busiest airfields. You can catch nonstop flights to Denver from multiple airports in every U.S. region and rent a car to finish your trip to Cheyenne.
Quick Travel Guide to Cheyenne
With its magnificent natural surroundings and friendly locals, Cheyenne is a lovely city to visit at any time of year. It’s a dream destination for outdoorsy types, offering scenic horseback riding, excellent camping areas and nature trails for hikers of all skill levels. In the heart of the city, rollicking honky-tonks host live music, local shops sell authentic Western wear and sizzling steakhouses serve up thick cuts of USDA Prime, a true specialty in this region settled by ranchers.
Though there’s a great deal to see and do no matter when you arrive, a huge share of Cheyenne’s tourists visit during the annual Cheyenne Frontier Days festival at the end of July. For ten days, hundreds of thousands of visitors fill up the hotels in Cheyenne and the surrounding towns of Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska to witness some of the world’s most exciting and well-attended rodeo and ranching events. Other events rounding out this action-packed week include a heart-pounding air show, several outdoor concerts and free pancake breakfasts that serve tens of thousands of hungry attendees.
If you’re not stopping in for Cheyenne Frontier Days, you’ll have time to view the regional art and artifacts of the Wyoming State Museum and tour the stately Historic Governor’s Mansion, in which each room is furnished with fixtures and décor from a different era during the mansion’s tenure as the official residence of Wyoming’s governor.
