In Casper, you can discover the past while taking in picturesque scenery and modern amenities.
This town in central Wyoming marks the only point where the Oregon, California, Mormon and Pony Express Trails intersected during the westward expansion of the mid-1800s. Step into the shoes of these western travelers with a wagon ride from Historic Trails West or by visiting Independence Rock. Experience the outdoors with a quick drive to Casper Mountain, where summer hiking and mountain biking give way to winter snowshoeing and skiing at Hogadon Ski Area. Be sure to cast a line on the North Platte River, where uncrowded waters teeming with blue ribbon trout easily make Casper one of the best fishing destinations in the U.S. And don’t leave hungry; the restaurants in Casper are some of the best in the state, including Racca’s Pizzeria Napoletana and Firerock Steakhouse. End your day by perusing shops downtown and checking out the local music scene in the one and only Casper, Wyoming.
