With the celebration of our nation's 235th birthday coming up on Monday (if you count from the Declaration of Independence in 1776), us folks in Casper always assume that anywhere else is better to be. South Dakota, Colorado, Alcova...all great destinations, but they come with a great cost. Literally. The cost of summertime gas prices can take away from a good trip when you're putting all of your vacation fund into your tank. Why travel, when there are some great activities that are perfect for the whole family right here in our beautiful little city?
