I am surprised to see Laramie on this list. While Laramie and Wyoming in general appeal to certain types of people, I personally will never move back. I grew up in Cheyenne and lived in Laramie for a number of years, and that area is just not for everyone. The wages are artificially depressed across the board, mainly due to the University and State government. The housing is artificially inflated for some reason that I could never quite figure out. The 9-10 months of constant wind and winter is absolutely brutal.
Nashvillepoke is a wuss and absolutely hates cold weather. If winter sports/hunting is your thing then Wyoming can be heaven for you.
Laramie in itself is very difficult to make a decent living unless you are associated with the university. If you are associated with the university it is very difficult to move up in your career as you are typically stuck behind several lifers.
I will always be grateful for growing up and living most of my life in Wyoming as the life lessons and, do it yourself attitude instilled in the culture has proven to be extremely valuable in my life. However the lack of opportunity in Wyoming dictates that I will never move back.
One day i will find the best place to live that suits myself and my family, until then I will remain in Nashville.
