We stopped by here before starting to explore Cheyenne.Right off of I-25. The girl working there was very helpful and informative. There is a museum of sorts right in the visitor center.

Can't find a better designed building to get relief. It also has displays of everything Wyoming and travel brochures to show you where they are. Landscaping quite nice too. WY not Wyoming!

This is a nice rest stop plus it has a Wyoming welcome center inside. Get your brochures and coupons here. There is also a really nice little museum. It's easy to reach from I25 and I80.
