The small mountain town of Sheridan is known as the “Jewel” of Wyoming. It’s famous for its western history, and the dramatic mountain backdrop will undoubtedly win you over.
Sheridan is among the top ten mountain towns voted by North American Hunter, and it was voted the leading western town by True West.
Found right between Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park, even if visitors plan to make Sheridan just a stopover spot, they can still expect to find a charming mountainside community where they can enjoy some great outdoor activities.
Camping, fishing, and rock climbing are always popular distractions here, while getting a taste of the town’s rich cowboy culture is a MUST. We suggest checking out a dude ranch, attending a rodeo, and maybe even buying some classic cowboy attire.
But if you’re just looking to relax, how ’bout simply enjoying a traditional Western meal?
