Wide open, windy, mountainous, and majestic are just some of the words that could describe Wyoming, the least populated state in the country. The Cowboy State certainly makes for a beautiful retirement home especially for active, adventurous seniors. To help you in your search for the ideal retirement community, Senior Living has developed a comprehensive, unbiased database of the state’s 196 assisted living options. You’ll find unvarnished reviews of the communities from residents in an easy-to-use web format. To start, here are a few facts about Wyoming.
Wyoming doesn’t have a city over 100,000 people; Cheyenne, Casper and Laramie are the largest cities, and the cities you’ll likely find the most senior care options. Wyoming’s overall cost of living is right at the national average. The state has a lower than average state and local tax burden mostly because of the absence of a state income tax. No retirement incomes are taxed including those from other states. Now may be the best time to buy in Wyoming. The median home value in the state is just $81,100 (Sept 2010) down from $120,000 in 2006.
The climate varies greatly according to your location in the state. If you live in the eastern end where the Great Plains become the High Plains, in Cheyenne for example, you’ll experience primarily cold winters where the January temperatures average 26 degrees. But also where 50 degree days are not uncommon thanks to the Chinook winds. Cheyenne’s hottest month, July, often sees 90 degree highs. Contrast this with the mountainous city of Jackson where winters bring 200 inches or more of snow and summer days in the 70s.
Pick your outdoor poison: alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, snowmobiling, mountain biking, fly fishing, camping, rafting, hiking, bird watching, golfing. Do you want to start with skiing at Jackson Hole, camping in Yellowstone, hiking in Grand Teton? How about something more relaxing like Cheyenne’s cowboy Frontier Days in July? The Simpson Gallagher Gallery in Cody? The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center in Casper? How about Casper’s Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed golf course, Three Crowns?
