Hiker Resting On Rocks

Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Laramie is renowned for its stunning landscapes, engaging natural and cultural heritage, and year-round outdoor recreation. Festivals and downtown entertainment keep the Laramie community active and highlight the rich western culture.

Laramie is a wonderful place to practice medicine. The close proximity to Cheyenne and Fort Collins make it exceptional. Denver isn’t too far for someone who do doesn’t mind a little bit of driving. Also, having the University of Wyoming right here with all the associated cultural activities gives it a happy, upbeat vibe.”

We like living in Laramie because of all of the opportunities here. The University of Wyoming offers many cultural events and we are big sports fans so we love to attend the Cowboys and the Cowgirls games. The schools are excellent and our kids have had very good experiences from grade school through high school. The opportunity for outdoor recreation is excellent — we enjoy fishing, hiking, camping and hunting. There are also great opportunities for downhill and cross country skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer.
