Sheridan Things to Do

  • Day out with Ron Spahn

    If you’re staying at Sphan’s Big Horn B&B you have the option to book a guided trip with Ron Spahn. Our trip was definitely one of the highlights of our Wyoming holiday! Ron plans each trip according to the interests of his guests. Our itinerary was as follows:~ Over the Big Horn mountains behind the house on forest roads, stopping at a surge dam...

  • Sheridan

    Unfortunately we didn’t have a lot of time to explore Sheridan itself but I liked the look and feel of the town. There’s an attractive historic area downtown, for which a local organisation, Downtown Sheridan Association, has put together a walking tour. You can download a guide to this from their website.There are plenty of small shops on Main...

  • Pryor Mountains

    Just west of the Big Horn Mountains are the Pryors, the main destination on our day trip with Ron Spahn (see my other Things to do tip for an overview of that tour). These mountains are home to the wild Pryor Mustangs and we were fortunate to have several good sightings of several bands. These wild horses roam over their range in bands from two or...

  • Shell Falls

    This is a lovely spot if you’re looking for a break while driving Hwy 14, the Big Horn Scenic Byway. Coming from the west you climb up through dramatic Shell Canyon, with its craggy limestone outcrops, stacks of granite, and sandstone. A little over halfway up you come to Shell Falls, where the water tumbles into Shell Creek. A very informative...

  • Bighorn Canyon

    The Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area is probably one of the most under-rated sights of Wyoming. We’d come across very little information about it while planning our trip and would have passed it by had we not been taken there by Ron Spahn.The park was established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, following the construction of the...

Sheridan Restaurants

  • High Quality

    What I call a "posh nosh" restarant. The steak may not have come with a full plate of fries but it was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Just as well that I didn't get a plate of fries as I needed to have room to enjoy the Dark Chocolate & Banana Bead Pudding. Fillet Steak

    My favorite restaurant would have to be Perkin's. Although this is a tourist town, they sure don't have a lot of nice resturants. Twice as many fast food resturants as dine-in. If you like to sit and just have coffee, I would have to recommend Java Moon on North Main St. This shop offers coffee and tea, and some side items. Another option is to get...

    My favorite restaurant is a place called Sanfords' Grub and Pub. The name says it all, it is designed around the TV show. The atmosphere is generally fun, it is very loud,(at times) and is very relaxed. The food is EXELLENT! When they say everything is bigger in Wyoming, this restauant is proof! The silverware looks like farm equipment! Forks the...

    The local after work evening hang outs are local taverns. The Pony offers good food as well and freebie food for Friday Happy Hour- a little noisey if you are not on the oudoor deck. A great cowboy bar that is a tradition in Sheridan is The Mint Bar good right after work and later on the weekends. Young people enjoy the bar at the Holiday Inn, LBM,...

  • Sheridan WYO Theatre - pronounced Y-O

    The WYO is an old fashion theatre built in 1923 with tall ceilings, balcony, bar. As a child I went to movies there but it has since been refurbished into a show piece. They offer an interesting mix of shows and plays which have on more than one occasion included Garth Brooks. (A real coo for a little town like Sheridan.) The box office is open...

    Three main places to go to. There are others, but you will find the people here.Number one spot--LBM's It is on Coffeen Ave. across from Perkin's. People usually get there 9:30pm at the earliest. By 10pm it is getting packed and stays that way until close (1:30am). They have a big dance floor, plenty of space to sit, sometimes a band, and other...

    By car Interstate 90 is usually the way people enter Sheridan.

  • The Interstate

    The interstate runs right through Sheridan. You can't miss Sheridan. There are three exits. The college exit, the 5th street exit, and the Port of Entry. So whichever way you are coming in from, you have three chances to get to downtown Sheridan.If you are hungry and just want to stop in long enough to get something to eat, I recommend College...

Sheridan Warnings and Dangers

  • Driving at night

    If driving around the Big Horns at night, as elsewhere in Wyoming, you need to be very careful. When we crossed the mountains after dark on Highway 14 we saw deer every few hundred yards, and they’re no respecters of traffic. Drive at a sensible speed and keep a constant watch for movement by the side of the road or the gleam of their eyes caught...

    When traveling in the mountains remember that wildlife is just that, wild. The National Forest is not a petting zoo. If you want to take a picture keep your distance. Moose may look tame, but they can be dangerous. They can run up to 30 miles per hour.. We also have bear, coyotes, elk, deer, mountain lions, rattle snakes...

    Big, Wonderful, WILD, Wyoming. When traveling to, from, or in Wyoming, be careful and keep an eye out for deer, dogs, skunk, and porcupine that may be crossing any and all roads. Day or night, summer or winter, this is their land and all you have to do is drive by any auto repair shop in town and they will be backed up with drivers who were...

  • Packing List

    Gore-tex, wool, and polar fleece items come in handy all year long. Especially, if you decide to spend time in the mountains bring a hat and gloves. Cloud Peak in the Bighorns is higher than 13,000 feet and it can snow any month of the year. Waterproof hiking boots are also a good idea. You should also pack some bug spray and sun screen. The sun...

    If there is anything i can tell you for sure about Wyoming, it's that the weather is the most unpredictible in the States. Bring everything you can think of, from shorts to winter gear. I highly recommend bringing a large first-aid kit. Anything can happen, especialy when hiking, camping, or anything involving rigorous outdoor...

    In the town of Greybull on the western edge of the Big Horn Mountains is the Maverick Motel. I can’t write an accommodation tip for this place as we didn’t stay here, but it provided us with a unique photo opportunity and if like us you enjoy the off-beat and wacky, then a stop here is a must!The area in front of the motel is devoted to their...

    If you have a suitable vehicle or if like us you stay at Spahns and arrange to tour with Ron (see my Things to do tips) you can get off the highways and really get to know the Big Horns. Even with a regular 2-wheel drive some of the forest roads are passable (with care) and will take you to places only a few tourists to Wyoming ever see. One such...
