Most people spend their entire lives working hard and sometimes at minimal wages just in order to be able to retire and retire successfully. For once you finally have the opportunity to be free from the everyday hustle and bustle. No more routines and no more working just to survive. As a retiree you finally have the chance to simply enjoy the little things in life.

For many retirees comes new experiences. Many retirees plan to make their second major move in life once they retire. Many choose to move to warmer environments such as Florida while others choose to move to much more conservative places such as Wyoming.

Wyoming is one of the least populous states in the country
. It is estimated that there are less than six people per square mile. While that may seem quite boring Wyoming is far from that. You could see that first hand by visiting Cody Wyoming hotels, world class skiing, hiking, bird watching and more. In addition, Wyoming is also known for their fishing.

Current residents in Wyoming boast about the numerous amounts of activities that can be done outside. It is often also boasted that much of the state's land is owned by the government where in most states land is owned privately.

While Wyoming may be a very peaceful place for retirement it is often encouraged that you be a little rugged and cowboy like before moving to this area. If you care about fitting in.

But for those who could care less about being normal then you as a retire has lots of options in the state that has most passionately been referred to as, the cowboy state.
