"> About - Sheridan, Wyoming Travel and Tourism


Here in Wyoming, it’s more than just a word. It’s the sincerity of a smile, the friendliness behind a simple “Howdy,” and the authentic real West charm of Sheridan, Wyoming.

A breathtaking vision of the New West, Sheridan is Wyoming’s emerald city. The kind of place where cowboys convene over craft beer and coffee, where pronghorn spring over canvasses colored with Indian Paintbrush, and where the majestic peaks of the Bighorns stand proudly.

Cradled by the iconic Bighorn Mountain range, Sheridan extends a warm hospitality as legendary as the streets of historic downtown. Fabled cowboys once kicked up their boots at the Sheridan Inn, while modern mavericks revel in Old West charm at Sheridan’s bistros, cafes and brewpubs.
