A Small Town Meeting with Big Impact
Don’t let size deceive you. Casper is a mountain town full of adventure that makes a big impact on meetings. Like the famously large portions served up by a favorite mom-and-pop diner, our destination serves up a large portion of experiences with just the right amount of small-town charm.
Designated as the second largest city in the state, Casper is nestled in the center of the vast, expansive outdoors that make Wyoming famous. With an elevation just shy of a mile high, groups can discover outdoor adventures, hidden gems, historical sites and eateries all within a few miles of the urban core.
With a vast landscape of rugged mountain range and legendary waters, outdoor adventures in Casper are abundant… and will resonate with your groups long after the meetings have ended. The beautiful scenery lays course for some of Wyoming’s best outdoor exploration.
The North Platte River provides bucket list fishing and watersport adventure for even the most intrepid groups, while Casper Mountain provides team building opportunities with hiking and biking trails.
Groups can take tours and distilling mixology classes at one of Casper’s coolest establishments, the Backwards Distilling Company. They can tap into their creativity with a class and workshop at Art 321 or meet at Casper’s sweet spot, Donnell’s Candies, for handcrafted treats. Donnell’s offers corporate discounts for gifts for your groups and attendees.
As the historic heart of Casper, Downtown is full of museums, shops with quirk and rare finds just waiting to be discovered.
Experience life on the California, Oregon, Pony Express and Mormon Trails at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center. With beautiful Casper scenery and authentic exhibits and displays, the Center pays homage to trailblazers and tells the story of some of the most important events and migrations in American history.
The eponym of our city, Fort Caspar, is a reconstructed frontier outpost named after Lieutenant Caspar Collins who was killed in the 1865 Battle of Platte Bridge Station. Your group can experience recreated buildings and an interpretive center full of historical displays that recreate the town’s first 100 years.
Some of the best-reviewed Casper eateries include a local icon with a modest storefront, a café inside a cottage, a pizzeria and a steakhouse with a sister restaurant in Las Vegas.
Sherrie’s Place serves some of the best breakfast & lunch in the area. Located less than a mile from the Parkway Plaza Convention Center, it’s a must-visit restaurant for a pre-meeting breakfast or offsite lunch. The Cottage Café is another local favorite and FireRock and Racca’s Pizzeria Napoletana provide upscale dining from American classics to Italian-inspired fare.
