Wyoming isn’t just America’s least-populated state… it’s also arguably its most beautiful. With thousands of acres of wide-open space, an abundance of fresh air, and some of the nation’s most amazing natural wonders, Wyoming is truly an outdoor lover’s paradise. But while recreational pursuits might make for a great vacation destination, Wyoming is actually a fantastic place for a year-round home.
Here are five reasons to pack up and move to Wyoming… now.
It’s really affordable
If you’re looking for a spot where your dollar’s going to stretch a little further than your average town, Wyoming is a great place to start looking. In fact, our own little town of Sheridan enjoys a lower overall cost of living, as well as a lower median home value, than the rest of the US—and the state of Wyoming, too.
Other notes on affordability: Wyoming is tax-friendly! In fact, Wyoming enjoys low property taxes, tax-free real estate sales, and tax-free out-of-state retirement income!
There are lots of good jobs
Thanks to its reputation as an outdoor mecca, Wyoming tends to draw in visitors every season of the year, which has led to a booming tourism industry throughout the state. Agriculture is another important industry across the state.
In the Sheridan area specifically, major employers include Sheridan County School District 2, Sheridan Memorial Hospital, Sheridan Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, Cloud Peak Energy, and Sheridan College.
It’s so… clean
Take a nice, deep breath… and enjoy the taste of pure, pollution-free air! And the air doesn’t just taste better—clean living is better for your all-round health.
Bonus: You aren’t going to see stars like these anywhere else in the world!
The wild west is alive and well
Like a little cowboy culture in your life? You’ll definitely find it here! Sheridan—and Wyoming as a whole—has, in some ways, escaped the passage of time. There are no major cities or developments, no huge factories, no traffic-logged highways. There’s no rush-rush-rush of city living.
Life moves at its own comfortable pace here and, yes, the Wild West is very much alive, from the still-active ranches surrounding Sheridan to the annual WYO Rodeo.
And those wide-open spaces…
Get outside, explore, and escape to the breathtaking beauty of nature untamed. However you like to enjoy the great outdoors—hiking, biking, camping, hunting, fishing, boating, paddling, snowshoeing, horseback riding—you’ll find it all right here, just outside your back door.
No, really. You don’t have to go far; adventure in Wyoming awaits around every bend in the road.
