Enjoy the countryside and spectacular mountain vistas on this non-motorized 4-mile trail, located conveniently on the edge of town. The trailhead is located where pavement turns to gravel at the end of W 5th Street. If staying inside and keeping cozy is more your thing, catch a flick at Centennial Theaters. For complete movie listing visit the Centennial Theater website.

Enjoy happy hour at a local watering hole; Sheridan is quickly gaining a reputation as a craft destination, and is home to the Black Tooth Brewery, Luminous Brewhouse, and the world famous Mint Bar.

End your day at the Carriage House Theater with an evening performance of Nightfall with Edgar Allen Poe, by the Sheridan Civic Theater Guild. Tickets can be purchased at the WYO Theater Box Office, online or at the theater 1 hour pre-show.
