LET'S GET EXPLORING

       

Adventure through Cheyenne’s history!

       
Howdy from Cheyenne, Wyoming! My name is Andy Lope and this is my sister, Anne (she is kind of bashful… most people call her “Lil’ Shy Anne”). We’re a couple of native pronghorn antelope and we love showing families around our hometown, the capitol city of Wyoming! We’ve put together a FREE scavenger hunt in downtown Cheyenne, highlighting some of the local history, especially geared toward families with kids ages 4-14! You can finish the scavenger hunt in a morning/afternoon, over a few days, or even opt to complete only a few of the challenges, in any order you wish.

There is no need to download anything—you will receive a personalized link to log into a website using data or WiFi. Feel free to tag any photos along the way with #PairOfPronghorn so we can see your adventures too. If you complete the entire challenge, you can stop in at the Visitor’s Center inside the Depot Building and pick up a prize for each kid in your group!
