"A friendly university town with a nice vibe" Top 5 Page for this destination Laramie by toonsarah
Laramie Travel Guide: 83 reviews and 177 photos
There's a small historic downtown area of just a few blocks. Beyond that are quiet residential streets, and beyond those the university campus.
The railroad tracks edge the downtown area to the west, and on the other side is the Wyoming Territorial Prison which is well worth a visit (one of its most famous inmates was Butch Cassidy)
The town may be small but there's a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafes (although many were closed on the Sunday) and places to stay too.
Most of the motels seemed to be on the outskirts so we were pleased with our choice of a downtown B&B, the Mad Carpenter (silly name but a comfortable home from home environment).
As a bonus, Laramie is surrounded by beautiful scenery, for example in the Snowy Range Mountains.
