Personally, if I ever get free of Casper, I will never come back! As a 15 yr resident, I wouldn't recommend Casper, especially for families. While there are many different education opportunities, the school system is so large, that children, especially those who are struggling, tend to fall through the cracks. Job opportunities do abound, in every level, from entry to CEO. There are a number of museums, and art galleries, many parks and recreational areas. Unfortunately, most activities are geared toward younger people. If you're older, or have very young children, there is not a lot available, for you. A big plus, for everyone, would be the river walk and its connection to Morad Park, the local dog park. The weather, especially when you consider high wind, leaves a LOT to be desired. Housing costs are astronomical, as is the cost of living. But, by far, the biggest negative to living in Casper, is the crime, and the corruption of the local police departments. As the wife of a retired LEO, I am very familiar with what happens, in the shadow areas, of Casper. If I had it to do over, I would never have moved here...and the first opportunity I get to leave Casper, you can bet I will take it! Casper is the one black mark, against Wyoming. The rest of the state is absolutely awesome!
