Destination guide

Discover your inner cowboy in historic Sheridan

As the Pet Shop Boys said, "Go west, where the skies are blue." Well in Sheridan, the skies are very blue and very, very big. Nestled below the Bighorn Mountains, this charming Wyoming city harks back to the days of the wild west, but with a contemporary edge. Its 19th-century saloons, craftsman homes, and ranches attract visitors worldwide looking to sample the good ol' days. It also has a thriving cultural scene with many theaters, museums, galleries, and art installations. When you book a Sheridan vacation rental, you can be confident that you'll have a time you'll never forget.

Things to do

Step back in time with Buffalo Bill and General Custer

There's no better reminder of the city's celebrated past than the Sheridan Inn. Built in 1892, the hotel was a favorite haunt of the world-famous showman William "Buffalo Bill" Cody, who even held auditions for his touring show from the front porch. Art lovers definitely won't be disappointed by The Brinton Museum. Set on a 620-acre ranch, this museum has a large collection of international and Native American art and artifacts. And for the history buffs among you, it's an hour's drive to the Little Bighorn Battlefield Monument, where General Custer and his men made their last stand in 1876.

Activities

Craft breweries, modern art... and a really big wheel

You couldn't be bored in Sheridan, not even if you tried. Its venerable downtown area, with its Western allure, is a real treat. Take a walk on Main Street and gaze at the neon signs that overhang the many 19th-century saloons, where you'll find legendary bars, restaurants, and craft breweries. Pay a visit to the numerous art galleries dotted throughout Sheridan, showcasing traditional and modern art. And to get the real Western experience, saddle up and ride the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains. Or to see something truly special, hike up to the Big Horn Medicine Wheel, a Native American stone monument.

Weather

Sheridan: it's always a delight, come rain or shine.

Don't let those classic Westerns fool you. While it may always seem sunny on screen, this part of the world can pretty chilly come winter. In December and January it can fall below zero, with the ground covered in a thick blanket of snow. But when summer arrives, it's a different story entirely. The mercury can push pass 90 in July and August, while in September it gets up to the mid 70s. The city is a pretty happening place in summer, so May and September are your best bets if you're looking to get a good deal on a Sheridan vacation rental.

Natural features

Go off the grid in the Bighorn Mountains
