Ross and I recently headed to Laramie, Wyoming. While our main goal was to get some homemade ice cream, which I will be sharing about here, we also were able to fit in a visit to the Wyoming State Prison.
The location for this prison is absolutely gorgeous. It was pretty awe-inspiring, honestly. We also noticed a few RVs parked there, so I imagine they allow overnight parking. When we arrived, we only had an hour left until they closed, so it was a true whirlwind tour.
Seeing the cells (and going inside them), reading the stories of the outlaws and the women and men who probably didn’t deserve to be imprisoned…it was powerful and truly fascinating. Wyoming was a really tough place for a long time, and that was definitely clear here.
After our visit, we visited a game store and headed downtown for homemade ice cream. And then we went for Mexican, which ended up being pretty delicious and easy, even gluten-free. It was a great night!
Laramie is a college town and the downtown is both quirky and cute. I will enjoy a future, return visit, and we were glad we stopped.
Thanks for reading! And if you enjoyed this, consider giving our affordable visit to Delaware a read.
