Wyoming has been blessed in so many ways including oil, gas, coal, trona and other natural resources. Recent hits in the energy sectors aside, “Wyoming has been named best business climate in U.S. for fifth year running.” The beauty of our state is unparalleled and the people are some of the best in the world.

Who wouldn’t want to live here? Evidently, most of the US. We are the least populous state in the union, and that’s one thing many of us highly value. But that aside, where is the best place to live in Wyoming? Livability.com says Laramie.
