While big cities are full of crowds, this holiday season escape to the tranquility and hospitality of the American West. Recently named a Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Sheridan, Wyoming is rich in frontier heritage, American art, and seasonal adventure.
Holiday Spirit: Celebrate the season in true Cowboy style. From Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, Sheridan is transformed during the Annual Christmas Stroll . Picture an old fashioned wagon with evergreen wrapped bows, jingling along Main Street; the store fronts and lamp posts twinkling under colorful lights. The sights and sounds of holidays passed will be on display from Trail End State Historic Park to the Bradford Brinton and even the WYO Theater.
Snow Play: Speed across alpine meadows on a snowmobile, take a leisurely snowshoe trek on mountain trails, or try a bit of icefishing with a local outfitter. Just outside of town the majestic Big Horn Mountains offer endless snow adventures during the winter months. Well over 300 miles of marked and groomed trails meet thousands of acres of powdery meadows, offering plenty of space to roam by ski or sled.
Warm Up: If a day in the snow sounds a bit chilly, take advantage of Sheridan’s art and cultural scene. Visit some of the sites in the Historic Main Street District such as the internationally famous Kings Museum and Saddlery where the artistry of Don King’s leather work and saddles is displayed. Not to be missed the Bradford Brinton Memorial and Museum displays frontier life from the 1920s and an extensive American art collection with artists ranging from Audubon to Remington.
This year leave the hustle and bustle of the city and travel to a less complicated time and place. The friendly folks of Sheridan look forward to sharing their holiday traditions.
