9 Privileges Wyomingites Have That The Rest Of The U.S. Doesn’t
There’s something about Wyoming life that the rest of the country can’t quite understand. Those of us who are lucky to live here know that there are so many perks to life way out here, where you’ll find adventure and beauty around every corner and meet the best friend you’ll ever make. Here are a few reasons why living in Wyoming is better than living anywhere else.
1. We're surrounded by history.
The Oregon Trail carved its way through the state, and today it's easy to see evidence of Wyoming's early days in nearly every town. Our state is littered with ghost towns, too, brought to life by the mining industry and sent into despair by failed mines, disasters, and forgotten promises.
2. You can order a steak the size of your head pretty much anywhere you go.
Whether it's a rusty spoon or a fancy place in town, Wyomingites know how to cook up delicious cowboy-sized steaks.
3. We have direct access to the country's best national parks.
Even the most hardened, crowd-phobic Wyomingite will talk fondly of Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.
4. You'll always feel at home in our small towns.
Our quiet small towns are the perfect places to relax and get a taste of wild Wyoming life. Enjoy mom and pop restaurants as you learn the history of the town. You'll feel like you fit right in, from day one.
5. Driving is always an adventure.
There is nothing quite like a drive on Wyoming's rural roads. Whether you find yourself on the Beartooth Highway, the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway, or just on any other Wyoming road, you're sure to see scenery that will take your breath away.
6. Living here is like stepping back in time.
No matter where you are in the state, you can find yourself an old fashioned town (or even a preserved trail town!) and settle in for a cup of cowboy coffee while you imagine yourself in your forefathers' shoes.
7. Wyoming is the most hospitable state.
Unlike the busybodies on the East Coast that are always rushing around, or the southerners who are only nice to preserve their reputation, Wyomingites genuinely care about their neighbors, and visitors. They're quick to offer you a place to lay your head and a warm meal to fill yourself up after a tedious trek through the Cowboy State.
8. It's easy to escape into the wilderness.
Those of us who love to escape into the forests are truly in the best state. Wyoming's wilderness areas like Cloud Peak,
Gros Ventre and Jedediah Smith are unlike any other place on earth.
9. Every day is an adventure!
"Sorry I'm late, there was a bison in the road" is something that every Wyomingite has said at least once. There's always something new to experience in our state, and every day is an adventure.
