Cheyenne is a location of choice partly because of where it is -- near the geographical and time center of the North American continent. Cheyenne manages a transportation triple play with the intersection of Interstates 80 and 25, two major railroads and the air corridor of the ultra-modern Denver International Airport (DIA). Six flights a day connect Cheyenne to DIA through Great Lakes Airlines. Great Lakes connects with United Airlines and Frontier Airlines, to connect people to airports around the world.Training (top)

Voted the most polite city by the executives across the nation, Cheyenne presents many favorable attributes. Particularly noted for its spirit of volunteerism, the community supports a myriad of activities. One annual event typifies this spirit. Each year, as Cheyenne swells to accommodate three times its population, more than 2,000 residents volunteer their time and talent to produce the world's largest outdoor rodeo -- Cheyenne Frontier Days-- an extravaganza lasting 10 exciting days and nights.Climate (top)
Cheyenne rests on a broad plateau 6,100 feet above sea level. Majestic mountains to the west act as a moisture barrier, lending to the city's semi-arid climate. Bathed in sunshine and clear blue skies 327 days a year, the city experiences 52 inches of annual snowfall, which quickly melts away in the sun's warm rays.

Cheyenne Regional Medical Center acts as the regional referral center for cardiac care and cancer treatment. F.E. Warren Air Force Base provides medical airlift capabilities enhancing rapid response to medical emergencies. Laramie County health care systems successfully compete for national research projects.
