Unique Blend of Western Hospitality and Sophistication
Nestled between two mountain ranges in southeastern Wyoming, Laramie is a town of 30,000, with a unique blend of western hospitality and sophistication. Browse through historic downtown, dine in one of our fine restaurants, relax in a coffeehouse, check out a museum or gallery, or take in the Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site, which preserves one of only two territorial prisons still in existence. Summers offer the excitement of Laramie Jubilee Days celebration and a weekly, seasonal Farmers' Market.
