As we all plan in a more mindful meeting landscape, some perks come from choosing a wide-open location for business—and meeting possibilities. From bucket-list allure to urban offerings and modern amenities to increased safety protocols and cleaning standards, Casper, Wyoming is full of perks for your meeting or event.
Outdoor Recreation: There's No Such Thing as too Much Open Space
Breathing fresh air. Soaking in nature’s beauty. Getting exercise. Relieving stress. The benefits of experiencing the great outdoors are undoubtedly invaluable, and now more than ever, attendees are seeking these benefits during their business travel.
Casper is blessed with an uncommon rural beauty that backdrops some epic Wyoming roaming. When meeting in the city’s center, attendees are never more than 20 minutes from accessing the region’s best sightseeing locations, blue-ribbon fly-fishing, hiking and biking trails, skiing, snowshoeing and more. Imagine stepping outside your downtown hotel and quickly being on your way to exploring the North Platte River, nearby Casper Mountain and many other wide-open spaces. The heart of Wyoming leaves that possibility wide open for you.
There's More Exploring to do Indoors
While Casper is known for its expansive outdoors, our indoor options are just as exciting for attendees. They can visit one of the 11 museums and landmark sites that provide a significant look at a bygone era of the West. A stop by our local craft distillery provides a look at locals mixologists who know how to shake a cocktail, while downtown boutiques and Western shops are ideal for souvenir scouting or picking up a pair of cowboy boots. Casper’s businesses and attractions are open for business—while carrying out safe and healthy protocols—and ready to show your group some local authenticity.
