Laramie, Wyoming was established along the Union Pacific Railroad line in the mid-1800s. It is located in southeastern Wyoming in Albany County, on the Laramie River, west of Cheyenne, at the intersection of I-80 and US 287. Laramie had a population of 30,816, including 13,394 households and 5,843 families, as of the 2010 census.
Due to its scenic location, low taxes and educational opportunities, Money Magazine named Laramie one of the best cities for retirees in 2011. One of Laramie’s most important annual events is Jubilee Days. Started in 1940, Laramie Jubilee Days takes place at the beginning of July and encompasses the Fourth of July and Wyoming Statehood Day on July 10. Jubilee Days typically includes live music, rodeo events, food, games, a street fair, softball tournament, parade and carnival rides.
Laramie’s location between the Laramie Mountains (Laramie Range) and Medicine Bow Mountains (Snowy Range) makes it a virtual playground for outdoor activities, such as skiing, rock climbing, snowmobiling, hiking, fishing, camping, hunting and mountain biking. In fact, one of the things Laramie is most known for is its mountain bike trails, including the Medicine Bow Rail—Trail, a 21-mile trail that runs along the bed of an abandoned railroad southwest of Laramie. In addition, the Laramie Enduro 111K, a 69-mile (111 kilometer) mountain bike race, is held annually on the Laramie Range trails.
While Laramie’s outdoor activities are one of its greatest draws, those same activities can also often result in personal injuries for its residents and visitors.
