Hi, fellow travellers. I'm thinking about attending the Frontier Festival in Cheyenne in late July in 2011. However, i am having trouble finding suitable accommodation in Cheyenne, as prices have skyrocketed due to the festival. I am a single traveller, and will be going to the Grand Canyon and Phoenix prior to going to Wyoming. I'm wondering if anyone on here would have some advice as to what to do about accommodation either in Cheyenne or relatively near there. Thanks.;)

Stay in the state of Colorado, either in Fort Collins or Greeley areas off Interstate 25. It is about an hour's drive to Cheyenne, but should be quite cheaper for accommodations.

Best of luck.

Luckily we got reasonable accomm in one of the Holiday Inn (considering the festival) and am now having trouble getting there. Greyhound say they don't run buses to CHeyenne for the dates i'm requesting and i can't even find an airline that flies in to CYS.

Any Help is appreciated,

Rgds

Hi - Frontier Days are a real blast , seems like most of CO heads that way in July/Aug . Flying in to Denver is the closest large airport - perhaps rent a car w/ unlimited mileage since you will be so close to the Snowy Range & the Medicine Bow Mtns - Pawnee National Grasslands offers aglimpse of what the Natives saw - no bldgs , or telephone poles just real wide open Plains . Anyway , Cheyenne is about 2 hours frm DIA and 1 & 1/2 hours frm downtown Denver .
