Cheyenne is the capital, and there are approximately 60,000 people who live in the city.

Best time to take a vacation to Wyoming
The most popular time to visit the state is between June and August, which is also when most rodeos occur. This is the prime time for rafting on the rivers, mountain biking, and more. November through March is the off-season because the weather is cold and unpredictable. Spring and fall have variable but pleasant weather, making trips to Wyoming during these seasons interesting for visitors. Cheyenne Frontier Days is a very popular attraction that occurs at the end of July.
