It was a very nice, quiet town. I had a hard time navigating - most of the cities and towns I have traveled to have a very intuitive layout, but not Cheyenne.

Lack of grocery stores close to I-25; it was very difficult to find what my family needed in terms of groceries due to the sparsity of stores.
