Thank you to guest blogger and co-worker at our RE/MAX Capitol Properties brokerage, Donica Enevoldsen, for sharing her story! Welcome to Cheyenne, Donica!
With another great Cheyenne Frontier Days in the books, it’s almost time to say farewell to summer. Students will be returning to their classrooms, days are getting shorter and cooling down, and soon we will be enjoying the beautiful autumn in Wyoming. At RE/MAX, we couldn’t imagine a better place to call home. Why Cheyenne though? It’s a question we ask a lot at RE/MAX, and if you’ve seen our videos, you’ll know there are so many reasons to love this community. As a newcomer, I’ve enjoyed finding my own reasons why I’m happy to call Cheyenne home, and after experiencing my very first Wyoming summer, I have to say, it wasn’t what I expected. It was better.
My summer was filled with some of the best outdoor activities I could ask for: kayaking at Crystal Reservoir, hiking gorgeous trails in Vedauwoo, fishing, stargazing the brilliant wide-open Wyoming night skies, and the simple, but pleasant, evening walks around Lion’s Park.
What I loved most is the balance between the quiet moments, and the lively activities you can find readily available in the Cheyenne area. Whether it’s watching the sunset in a quiet field of wildflowers with someone you love, or enjoying a cold beverage and live music in the bustling downtown atmosphere, there’s always something to do.
On Friday nights, when the workday ends, Downtown Cheyenne ignites with music for Friday Night’s on the Plaza. Music, dancing, friends, food, drinks, and of course cowboy boots, transform the plaza into the perfect place to spend time with friends and family. Then of course, celebrating the iconic Cheyenne Frontier Days is an experience that people travel from across the country to take part in and only gets better when you call Cheyenne home.
There are so many reasons to visit Cheyenne, but it’s the community that makes you want to put down roots. There are so many friendly faces and good people here, friends are never hard to find. I’ve only been here a few months and already I’ve gotten to meet so many great people. I appreciate that even as Cheyenne grows exponentially, it still has that hometown feeling of friendly neighbors and an active community.
In my hometown, community involvement is very important, so I was happy to work for a company that values the community as much as RE/MAX does. When we say we are “sold on our community,” we mean it. Cheyenne is great, but it’s the hardworking individuals, who strive daily to improve their community that is why Cheyenne is one of the best places to be “sold” on.
