“Wyoming’s Adventure Capital” is an energetic city that blends Western history with a lively arts scene and year-round sporting and recreational activities.

Museums that celebrate Western culture, a thriving arts scene and outdoor adventures make Casper an exciting getaway. Casper sits in southeast Wyoming, where it grew up as a 19th-century pioneer outpost and oasis for travelers on the Oregon-California trail. Today, it’s a year-round destination that presents myriad cultural, entertainment and recreational activities.

Casper’s museums celebrate the city’s long history and pioneer traditions. Follow in the footsteps of early immigrants at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center. Tour a reconstructed military fort and see displays of social history artifacts at Fort Casper Museum. Check out the meteorites and dinosaur relics at the Casper College Tate Geological Museum. See displays of regional and worldwide wildlife at the Werner Wildlife Museum.

Get inspired at downtown Casper’s art centers. See the work of Wyoming artists at The Corridor Gallery. Admire exhibitions of traditional and contemporary Western art at the Nicolaysen Art Museum. Enjoy a performance by the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra. Attend ballet, music and literature events at Artcore.

Connect with nature and spend the day fishing, boating or rafting on the North Platte River. Play a round of golf at one of five excellent courses. The Three Crowns Golf Club was designed by reputed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Attend spectator sports such as baseball and a national rodeo competition.

Find outdoor adventure at Casper Mountain. Hike or bike along scenic trails or take refuge from the summer heat at picnic and camping areas. Traverse the ski and snowmobile tracks when the winter snow arrives. Visit the Crimson Dawn Park & Museum to learn about life on the mountain. Don’t miss the annual Beartrap Summer Festival, two days of alfresco music on a mountaintop meadow.

Reach Casper by intercity bus or fly to Casper/Natrona County International Airport from Denver, Las Vegas and Salt Lake City. Getting around is easiest by car. You’ll find plenty of free parking. Casper is also a gateway to Wyoming’s natural and historic sites. The petroglyphs of Castle Gardens, lakes and canyons of Ayers Natural Bridge Park and magnificent Fremont Canyon are all less than a 1-hour drive away.
