Cheyenne Frontier Days
« on: June 11, 2013, 09:44:39 AM »
Hey all,

Curious to see if anyone would be doing this this year?  (July 21-26) Or if anyone has gone to this in years past?  We will be in RMNP during this time.  Ive heard some mixed reviews about it

If you don't mind crowds, the Frontier Days are neat to see. It's been years since I went (it's less than two hours drive from here), but it was fun. But it is crowded, and parking is at a premium. Rocky Mountain National Park or Boyd Lake near Ft. Collins or several other Front Range sites make a good base to visit Cheyenne. If they're not full, there are a couple of parks around Cheyenne, too.

Just in case you've not come across it, this site is for Frontier Days. In spite of the name, there's more than just rodeo, including a wonderful parade, theme park and more. So much of whether it's worthwhile depends on what you've seen/done in the past and what your preferences are. We've seen so many parades/theme parks/cowboy dramas/etc./etc. over the years that it's hard to get excited about another, but your experiences and preferences are likely quite different.

We are in the midst of 2 month journey that will include Cheyenne Frontier Days. We have tickets for the rodeo. We've never seen one, so its on our bucket list and we're looking forward to going!! Staying at Terry Bison Ranch Resort and RV Park just outside of Cheyenne. Its a PA park, but not during CFD.

We passed through Cheyenne last year when we stopped to see the Big Boy at Frontier Park. (railfan here). We saw several things that we wanted to see more of, so we checked out CFD and decided to spend a few days this year.
