“The Daddy of Them All” takes center stage in Cheyenne, Wyoming this week for rodeo contestants and fans alike. While there is plenty to take in at Frontier Park, there are lots of activities to keep you busy in the Capital City during your visit.
Here are some of our top picks to keep yourself busy and have fun while in ‘ole Cheyenne for Cheyenne Frontier Days.
1. Free Pancake Breakfast at the Depot Square
Downtown Cheyenne : July 25, 27,29 7-9 am
More than 100,000 pancakes, 3,000 pounds of ham and 520 gallons of coffee are served by volunteers at this historic event. Bring the whole family, or eat a stack for yourself.
2. Check out Wyoming’s newly renovated Capitol building
200 W. 24th St. Cheyenne, WY
The Capitol is the “people’s house” and free for the public to enjoy. Over $300 million in renovations have made this gem shine.
3. Shop at The Wrangler
1518 Capitol Ave Cheyenne
We could not help but suggest a shopping trip to a store that shares the same cool name that we do! Beyond the cool name, this is your headquarters for cowboy couture. With a real life hat shaper, and aisles of boots, the Wrangler is your source for your CFD wardrobe.
4. Visit the Cowgirls of the West Museum
205 W 17th St. Cheyenne
Wyoming is known as the equality state. This museum is a must see for rodeo enthusiasts. Admission is free and the museum. The museum is dedicated to preserving the history and legends of the pioneering women of the west.
5. Grab dinner at Little Bear Inn
1700 I-25 Service Road, Cheyenne
After you have toured Cheyenne and worked up an appetite, head to one of Cheyenne’s best steak houses and treat yourself to the “fancy fried” lobster tail and enjoy some “bear balls” for desert. Headed up by head waiter, Ryan, the service and company at Little Bear is as good as the food.
