Douglas, Wyoming is home to the Wyoming State Fair, the Wyoming Pioneer Museum, and the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy.  Agriculture remains important culturally with active ranching of horses, sheep, and cows.  Rodeo is another iconic part of the community's activities.  However, the energy industry is dominant in the economy.  Workplace issues for coal miners, railroad workers, uranium, and oil industry workers make up a large part of medical practice in this area.  Douglas also claims ready access to year round outdoor sporting activities including hunting, fishing, North Platte River and  Glendo Lake recreation, as well as  mountain hiking at nearby Laramie Peak which rises to 10,300 feet from the 5,000 foot elevation of the town.  Winters are mild enough that the local 18 hole golf-course is often active all but a few weeks of every year.
