Rock Springs, Wyoming is home to 56 nationalities thanks to its beginning in coal mining.
This high-desert oasis provides adventure around every corner. The charming downtown has an award-winning main street featuring great shopping opportunities and locally revered restaurants. The Killpecker Sand Dunes, just a few miles north of town, are the largest sand dunes in North America and the second largest in the world. Experience the dunes in an AWD vehicle, ATV, or on a sandboard or sled. Explore Boar’s Tusk, a long-extinct volcanic core standing above the dunes or explore the White Mountain Petroglyphs. Drive south of town to boat, fish, swim, and mountain bike at Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. If you’re looking for western culture, be sure to check out Sweetwater County Events Complex. The arena hosts annual rodeos and Wyoming’s Big Show at the Sweetwater County Fair and Rodeo.
