What is Life Like in Wyoming?


Have you had a chance to visit our Wyoming ranch lots at Wild Horse Ranch? If so, there’s a good chance you’ve fallen in love with this beautiful location just minutes away from Laramie, WY. You might already have a vision of your dream home in the country, and perhaps you find yourself daydreaming of spending your days in nature, in the wide-open spaces surrounding the property.


At the same time, you might be tempering your excitement with considerations of life in Wyoming. If you are considering a move from a more populated spot to your own Wyoming ranch property, it’s worth examining the differences.


You’ll pay less in taxes in Wyoming


If you’re already considering building a home at Wild Horse Ranch, you know that Wyoming real estate is a bargain. Even after the real estate investment, you’re going to continue to save on taxes while you live here. The state has no income tax at all, even if you’re earning retirement income from out-of-state. Property tax will run a bit over half the national average.


You’ll find plenty of solitude


The state of Wyoming is the least-populated state in the country. If you’re hoping to get away from big city crowds, owning ranch land in Wyoming will give you the escape you’re seeking. The town of Laramie, about 15 minutes away from your property, has a population of just over 32 thousand. Even the biggest city here—Cheyenne—is smaller than most suburban communities, with a population of under 66 thousand.


You’ll breathe easier


This beautiful state ranks fifth lowest in the country for air pollution according to U.S. News & World Report. The low population means fewer cars spewing their exhaust into the air and fewer factories producing smog that many cities are known for.


You might need a pair of boots


“Cowboy culture” is a big part of life here. If you enjoy the western lifestyle, you’re going to love Wyoming. Rodeos, country music, pickup trucks… it’s all part of everyday life.


You can enjoy all four seasons!


Here in Wyoming we enjoy all four seasons and your Wyoming ranch property can be be used year round.  If you enjoy wintertime activities like downhill or cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, or snowmobiling, you’ll have plenty of opportunity.
