8 Reasons Why People In Wyoming Should be Proud Of Their State
Wyomingites have a lot of state pride. You sort of have to love it out here to make it through the brutal winters, and the solitude is both a positive and a negative thing. With that being said, there are a lot of reasons to be proud of Wyoming – and many of them are easy to see!
1. We're a state of firsts!
First National Park, First National Forest, First National Monument... all from Wyoming. We were also the first state to allow women to vote, and elected the first all-female town council! You're welcome, America.
2. We're not tethered to technology.
We can function perfectly fine without cell phone service, because we're used to it. We also know how to get by without overpriced cable subscriptions and speedy internet. We spend most of our time living live without the pressures of social media.
3. We really know how to cook a steak.
You will find the best steaks in the entire world here in Wyoming. Don't believe me? Visit Svilar's in Hudson - enough said.
4. We're innovative.
Oh, that whole section of the state that's practially inhabitable because the ground will burn you to death? Build some boardwalks, charge 'em to see it.
5. Wyoming is easily the most gorgeous state.
Pull off of any highway or winding mountain road and look around if you need some convincing. Most of the state is absolutely stunning.
6. There's history everywhere you go!
The history of Wyoming is the history of the American West. From the Oregon Trail to the Transcontinental Railroad, it all happened in the heart of the Cowboy State.
7. Our small towns have a lot of character.
You'll meet the friendliest people as you make your way through the state. Whether you're in Lander, Afton, Lyman or Saratoga, you will come to learn Wyoming is truly a state of hospitality.
8. There is always something to do if you love to explore.
If you're outdoosy, Wyoming is the state for you. If you're not? Well, either pack up and move, or learn to fish! There's nothing like a day out on the water, or a day spent hiking through the mountains.
