STAY TRUE TO YOUR SCHOOL
LOCATION: CASPER EVENTS CENTER
It’s a month of madness when teams from around the state battle to see who takes home top honors. 2017 tournament season kicks off March 2-4 with the Wyoming High School Activities Association 1A/2A State Basketball Tournament followed by the 3A/4A Tournament March 9-11. On March 8, cheerleaders tumble and dance during the Wyoming State High School Spirit Competition.
BREAK OUT THE BATHING SUIT
LOCATION: CASPER FAMILY AQUATIC CENTER
Baby it’s cold outside, but at the Casper Family Aquatic Center the sun is always shining. Bring the towels, snorkel, masks and flippers (leave the sunscreen at home) for a beach day during the icy days of spring. The 23,500 square foot facility has everything but the sun and sand: zero-depth entry, “lazy river,” two water slides, four-lane lap pool, hot water whirlpool, party room and an outdoor deck. Or just kick back and relax in the hot tub while the kids burn off some energy!
WALK THROUGH HISTORY
LOCATION: DOWNTOWN CASPER
John Merrit and C.W. Eads established the town of Casper in 1888. Although this western outpost had a tough reputation, the sheep, cattle and oil and gas industries brought money and eventually beautiful buildings and homes that are still standing today. Pick up a self-guided tour program from the VisitCasper office and explore at your own pace. Start with the Historic Downtown Walking Tour, where you’ll see buildings that feature the original construction from the 1900s. Next, tour the South Wolcott Historic District to glimpse stunning residential architecture ranging from Tudor to Bungalow. End your journey with a stop in the up-and-coming Old Yellowstone District, one of the original routes to Yellowstone National Park.
