- As the air turns cool and the trees show their colors, it's a reminder that autumn is the perfect time to visit one of American Cowboy's âBest Places to Live in the West.â In northern Wyoming, the historic town of Sheridan has an adventure for every taste. Lovers of history and western culture will enjoy a trolley tour through the Historic Main Street District. There are 46 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places including the Sheridan Inn, which was once co-owned by Buffalo Bill. The Flemish Revival style mansion at Trail End State Historic Park shows a glimpse into the life of an early twentieth century cowboy turned Senator and Governor, John B. Kendrick. Frontier battle sites and forts show a different side of the Wild West's past. Just outside of town, the majestic Big Horn Mountains call to campers, hikers, hang gliders, horseback riders, photographers, and outdoorsmen. A multi-time winner in Outdoor Life's âTop 200 Towns for Sportsmen,â Sheridan has an outdoor fun for thrill seekers and naturalists alike. Fall is the perfect time to see abundant wildlife such as whitetail deer, elk, and pheasants. In October, the Bike-Tober Fest will combine a trail run, bike race, and party along the new Soldier Ridge Trail just west of town. Patrons of the arts will have plenty to see between Vaudeville-style shows at the WYO Theater, 30 sites of public art on the self-guided âArt on Display' tour, and the paintings from famous American artists at the Bradford Brinton Memorial Museum. Of course the beauty of the area during the fall may inspire travelers to pickup paintbrushes and cameras themselves. Autumn kicks off with the final Third Thursday Street Festival September 20th. This fall take a trip to this historic, adventurous, artistic, and award-winning destination. Sheridan offers a variety of accommodations for quaint cottages and rustic camp sites to larger hotels and cozy B&Bs.
